This was given to me years ago from a coworker! Easiest to make on a busy weeknight and even easier to "tweak" it and make it your own by using different combinations of cheese!

    box of macaroni noodles
  • 8 oz
    container of sour cream
  • 8 oz
    sharp cheddar cheese cubed

    container of cottage cheese

How to Make Fabulous Macaroni and Cheese


  1. Cook macaroni noodles according to package directions and drain.
  2. In a large bowl combine sour cream, cheddar cheese and cottage cheese. Add cooked noodles to this and mix well.
  3. Transfer to a lightly buttered (or butter sprayed) 9x13 dish.
  4. Sprinkle parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs or a combination of both on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
  5. If topping with cheese or breadcrumbs you may add a small amount of milk to the 2nd step depending on how creamy you prefer your macaroni and cheese. I have even added stewed tomatoes from time to time.
  6. You can even double this recipe by simply remembering that for every 8 or 16 ounces of macaroni you use, you will also use the same amount of cheddar and cottage cheeses as well as sour cream. Your baking time will also increase.
