Way to spice up a traditional favorite! This recipe is so smooth and creamy, and I love how well the cottage cheese blends right in to give it an even lovelier texture. (So don't shy away from trying it!) We went light on the spices, but season as you see fit! This is A+ mac & cheese. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
