I love mac and cheese! This is my most favorite recipe. I love the spice in this dish. It's sooo easy to make too!

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. The Test Kitchen
