My Gram used to serve this as a side dish...I made it more of a full meal with the addition of chicken. For some reason, she would always serve this with braised steak. It's similar to a macaroni and cheese, with a nice tang, from the cheddar and sour cream.. My kids love it!


Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook macaroni and drain.

Add macaroni to a large bowl and stir in cheese, salt and pepper, chicken if adding.

Grease an 11 x 7 baking dish and spread mixture evenly into dish.

Sprinkle with paprika and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes.
