A kinda "grown-up" mac and cheese that many kids like, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni noodles in boiling salted water for about 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat combine butter, salt, pepper, paprika and bell peppers, and onion. Simmer until peppers and onions are soft.
  3. Stir in cream, flour, sour cream, bleu cheese and Parmesan cheese; cook, stirring often, until smooth.
  4. Add milk, by tbsps, if desired for a thinner sauce.
  5. Pour the hot cheese mixture over the hot cooked macaroni and toss to coat.
  6. Serve.

This was good and very easy - also very quick! I think I like the oven-baked mac n' cheese better but this is good for when I don't feel like taking the extra time to make the oven - casserole type or don't feel like heating up the oven and really want mac n' cheese. Thanks for sharing!

I don't feel I can rate this fairly as it may be a matter of taste. I love bleu cheese but didn't like it heated. It also overwhelmed all of the other flavors. The sauce was very nice and creamy though. I used red, green, orange & yellow bell peppers. I used a red onion. The peppers and onion were so beautiful while cooking them! Thanks for the recipe, I'm glad I tried it. It gives me ideas for a cold macaroni salad. Made for Zaar Tag.

This sounds very good. I think I may try using potatoes instead of macaroni.(I just happen to love potatoes!)
