I don't normally put cheese on top. It was too cheesy! I have used 2% and it came out fine, just took a little longer to cook.
I have tried making it with soy cheese but the crust didn't come out right. I have never made it with fat free cheese. I don't know if it would work or not because FF cheese's texture is a lot like soy's when you melt it.
I'm sure you could probably play around with it and find a substitute while keeping the carbs down but I have no idea what you could use instead of cheese.
I also use cauliflower as a pasta substitute in my baked ziti.
