About This Recipe

"Found this in a Weight Watcher's cookbook of recipes from the magazine in 2000. This is fast to make and has a nice flavour. Not a zingy dish, but the kids and I enjoyed it. 2/3 of a cup is 3 WW points."

Ingredients

    • 8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
    • 5 ounces light processed cheese ( Light Velveeta)
    • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
    • 1/2 cup salsa

Directions

  1. Boil water for the macaroni. Cook the noodles in the water until done, usually 7-9 minutes.
  2. While the noodles are cooking cube the cheese.
  3. When the noodles are done drain them and then return to the pan.
  4. Add the cubed cheese and taco seasoning. Stir well, until the cheese is melted.
  5. When melted, add the salsa and serve.
