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!

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.

    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.
