one of my kids favorite mac & cheese recipe (except for the orange stuff in the box!) So this is a good compromise for us!

Ok for a pot luck, but kind of lacking flavor for me. I would add more actual cheese and decrease the amount of cottage cheese (it seemed a bit much).

This was sooooo easy to put together and sooooo good. My husband and I both loved it. He said it was the best Mac & Cheese recipe I've found yet. My 7yr. old wasn't as crazy about it though. I'm thinking between the sharp cheddar & the sour cream, that it might have been a little to rich for her tastes.
