Very creamy indeed, but also very tasteless. Fortunately I had some cheese flavored sprinkles on hand to make it palatable, all 3 of us at the dinner table felt the same way. Sorry Folks.

I made this last night, I used cheddar cheese and added garlic to mine. The flavor was good, and its nice to have a low fat macaroni and cheese, but the texture of the cottage cheese wasn't my favorite. I think next time I will try it with ricotta like one of the other reviewers, maybe the texture would be a little more creamy? We'll see. Thank you for the recipe!

Dancer you have a winning recipe here! I am always looking for good recipes that are "good for you" and this fits the bill. I, too used cheddar cheese, low fat ricotta cheese and fat free sour cream. The taste is so creamy and the onions give it a little different twist. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
