“Adapted from Cooking Light. If you prefer a different flavor cheese, then you may substitute whichever type you prefer, just so long as it is real cheese and not reduced fat. This recipe has already reduced the fat a lot from typical versions, and the amount of the cheese is just enough to give the taste and texture of the real real thing without going overboard. Also - if you are not watching your fat/calories, by all means use whole milk and butter if you prefer.”
