From the New York Times, circa 2006. Not a low calorie meal (can any great mac and cheese dish ever be?)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine cottage cheese, milk, mustard, cayenne, nutmeg and salt and pepper together in a bowl using a whisk. Reserve ¼ cup grated cheddar for topping. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the grated cheese, milk mixture and uncooked pasta. Pour into a buttered 9-inch baking pan, cover tightly with foil and bake 30 minutes.
  3. Uncover pan, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 C cheddar cheese and dot with butter. Bake 30 minutes more uncovered, til brown on top. Let cool ~ 15 minutes. Enjoy!
