This is the most amazing macaroni recipe EVER. My mother found it in a Mennonite cookbook, and now it is a staple at every family gathering, potluck, cookout, etc. It's easy to make & can be prepared a day ahead. YUMMY!!!


  1. Cook macaroni until just al dente. You don't want it mushy! Drain and rinse.
  2. Combine cottage cheese, sour cream, salt, cheese, and macaroni. Mix well. Sometimes I substitute all or half of the sour cream with Prairie Farms French Onion Dip. You can also add some minced onion. It's good any way!
  3. Pour into 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

My family thought this was very good, but I thought with all the cottage cheese and sour cream that it should have been creamier. It was extremely easy to make, and tasted pretty good.
