Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins


    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken stock
    2 Tbsp light buttery spread
    3 Tbsp flour
    1 cup fat-free milk
    1 dash of salt
    1 tsp ground black pepper, or to taste
    57.14 g reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
    1 tsp dry mustard
    228.57 g macaroni, dry (egg-free)
    4 slices smoked turkey (about 1 oz each), cut in half
    3 tomatoes, sliced
    3 fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
    1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, freshly grated


    Put the onion and chicken stock in non-stick skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook for 6 minutes until the stock is reduced completely. Set aside.

    In a saucepan, whisk the buttery spread, flour, milk, salt, and black pepper over medium heat until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat. Add cheddar cheese, mustard and cooked onion; combine.

    Meanwhile, cook the macaroni according to package directions. When done, strain macaroni and return to pan. Mix in the milk-cheese mixture.

    Transfer macaroni to a shallow flame-proof dish. Arrange turkey slices and tomatoes over the prepared macaroni. Sprinkle with basil leaves and Parmesan cheese. Grill to a light brown. Serve.
