READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by internetnut

The flavors of three different cheeses blend nicely and put a tasty twist on traditional macaroni and cheese. This came from Taste Of Home Simple & Delicious. I have not tried this, just posting for easy finding.

We call this "crackaroni" because it is so addictive. I use 8 oz each of Velveeta, sour cream and cottage cheese because it's just easier to remember. I also use bowtie pasta. I find it does best with the cheese sauce. The recipe I was given did not have breadcrumbs on the top. Either way, you can't go wrong with this yummalicious comfort food!
