    Hi Den

    Welcome to the SW forum... lovely to have you here!!

    Sorry I don't know about the one you want... either someone will come along and tell you... but in the meantime why not have a look at the recipe section ... there is lots of info there for puddings....red and green dishes ... syn value etc.
    Go have a browse and enjoy... look forward to seeing some of your posts... everyone here is so lovely and supportive so just ask away if you have a thought of question.

    Are you going alone or going to a club?

    Happy weight loss :)

    I would but ive never tried this before

    take my 6 HExA laughing cow cheese triangles and mix together with quark and some salt and pepper mix up with the macaroni already cooked and stick it in a dish then if i wanted to use syns or had a HExA left id put a bit of low fat grated cheese on the top and bung under the grill for a while

    might work.. could try sticking a bit of broccolli in also i love Mac Cheese with broccoli

    im guessing mind you so dont hold me to it, but the adding the LC to quark worked for my spinach lasagne the other day

    Not with quark but this mac cheese is lovely!!!!

    12oz Macaroni
    6 LARGE spring onions
    Mushrooms
    Garlic
    10oz cherry tomatoes
    Frylight
    3oz Cheese (use an oz of cheese per person)
    2 Eggs
    1 Tsp Dijon Mustard (i add 2/3 cause i love it)
    500g Natural yogurt (low fat)

    Preheat oven too 200

    Cook the macaroni- drain and set aside

    Chop the spring onions- half the cherry tomatoes - slice the mushrooms

    Heat a frying pan sprayed with frylight-

    Add the spring onions- tomatoes- mushrooms with the garlic

    Cook for 2/3 mins Then add 100ml of cold water

    Cook until absorbed

    Add the macaroni & the stuff in the frying pan into a dish (stirred in)

    Grate the cheese and lightly beat the eggs- mix together the cheese- eggs- yogurt- and mustard

    Pour into the dish

    Bake for about 10-20 mins or until the set and cheese topping is lightly golden (keep an eye on it-)
