~ Grams Macaroni & Cream ~

Cassie *


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!

How to Make ~ Grams Macaroni & Cream ~


  • 1Cook macaroni and drain.
  • 2Add macaroni to a large bowl and stir in cheese, salt and pepper, chicken if adding.
  • 3Stir in sour cream, onion and parsley.

    Grease an 11 x 7 baking dish and spread mixture evenly into dish.
  • 4Sprinkle with paprika and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes.
  • 5Serve as a side to meat entree or as I did, with adding chicken.

    Note: for reheating, I add a little milk, as with any pasta, it will absorb the liquids. I've also added a little extra sour cream.
