Home-Made (Easy) Mac N' Cheese

I was really craving Mac N' Cheese the other day and I wanted to make it light enough to not feel guilty eating it. I've also been looking for ways to throw Tumeric into foods and I thought that the color would blend well and the flavor is subtle and nice. Here is what I came up with!

1 box elbo noodles (whole wheat if you have it)
1 can evaporated milk
2 tbs unsalted butter
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbs dried minced onion
1 tsp Tumeric
about 1 tsp kosher salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded.

Cook noodles in salted water according to package directions. Drain. Melt butter in the pan and add the garlic. Give it a stir and add the milk and seasonings. Add the noodles back to the sauce and add the cheese. Stir over low heat until it is creamy and cheese is melted. Be careful to not over heat the bottom of the pan or you will have a sticky and burnt mess. Serve with grilled veggies, a salad or with some fresh peppers and carrots along side.
