    Amber of AZ's Note:

    A remade comfort dish. Easy to adjust to anyone's dietary needs. A teaspoon of cumin in the cheese mixture makes for a tangier mac and cheese if you want a different taste.

    4. 4
      In a bowl mix the milk, cottage cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper.

      Yum! I had trouble staying out of this it's so good! I'm never sure how much pasta to use when a recipe calls for it already cooked. In this case I used 2 cups of dry macaroni (which was probably closer to 4 cups cooked). I decided to throw the onion in the boiling water with the macaroni to cook it which worked great. I mixed everything except the onion & macaroni together then added those items once cooked. I also saved back a couple Tbsp of cheddar to put on top (and used regular not low-fat). I used a 2 qt casserole because I was afraid it would overflow my 1 1/2 qt dish. This was excellent and will definitely be made again! Thanks for posting!
