HFG tip

Why OUR dish is healthier!

  • Trim milk replaces full-fat milk, reduced-fat spread replaces butter and we’ve used less cheese to massively slash the saturated fat content
  • Cauliflower bulks up the dish with filling fibre so we use less pasta
  • The crunchy tomato-crumb topping lifts the number of vegetables
  • Mustard and fresh herbs add flavour without needing salt
  • This satisfying dish delivers under half the kilojoules and sodium, and more than twice the fibre of some macaroni cheese recipes
  • Save: 2500kJ, 56g fat, 37g sat fat, 640mg sodium
  • Add: 4g fibre
