Rich and cheesy but not too dry. My family loves this and we have it for all our big meals.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Reserve 1/2 cup shredded mild Cheddar cheese for later use
  4. Mix mild Cheddar cheese, sharp Cheddar cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and egg together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Stir cooked macaroni into cheese mixture. Pour macaroni mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with the reserved 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I added a few spices to make it a little more personal to our family (onion powder, garlic powder, little dijon mustard, little Frank's Hot Sauce, fresh ground pepper) but other than that, I kept to the recipe. I did not try this myself but I was told by my husband that the kids really liked it. They both had seconds. My husband said it was good but a little thick for him.

You dont actually need 2 bags of mild cheddar cheese, comes out fine! Delicious!

I loved how easy this was. My daughter and husband loved it. It turned out creamy and yummy. They don't like cottage cheese, so I substituted plain yogurt. I really liked the fact that I didn't have to use flour and butter to make a roux. Not having to do that step saved me time in the kitchen. Great recipe! I will definitely make this again!
