In the Kitchen: HG Macaroni and Cheese

I wanted mac and cheese. MY macaroni is delicious with a creamy sauce and usually a few types of quality (read: expensive) cheeses but it is not waist friendly. I caught Hungry Girl's mac and cheese on a recent episode and decided I'd try her lighter version - it was good, not as good, but very good. And yes I'd make it again.
6 cups frozen green giant cauliflower and cheese sauce ( I used the broccoli and cheese version)
2 cups uncooked ronzoni healthy harvest whole wheat blend rotinia pasta
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss Cheese
Optional salt and pepper to taste
Prepare pasta according to the instructions on the box and then drain and set aside. While pasta is cooking - place contents of frozen veg in cheese sauce in a large microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 12-16 minutes until sauce as melted and cauliflower is hot.
Once the bowl is cool, add cooked pasta and set aside. Unwrap cheese wedges and place in a small microwave safe dish. Melt for 30 seconds and stir until smooth, then add to bowl.
Mix thoroughly to make sure cheese is evenly distributed and season with salt and pepper.
