Tangy Cheese & Pasta Bake

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

A very grown-up tasting macaroni and cheese, with the nip of sharp cheddar and prepared mustard, and the tang of sour cream. In place of the mustard, try Worcestershire sauce, or a dash of Tabasco. Other pastas can be used also, like shells or rotini.

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars . I was looking for a recipe like the one my favorite health food market makes . This recipe seemed very close so , I tweaked it a little and was very pleased with the results ! I used penne pasta and grey poupon mustard , the rest of the ingredients were left the same . I put it in my gratin dish , then added marinara sauce to the top of the casserole and then topped it off with a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses . Baked till bubbly and starting to brown on top . We really liked this and plan on making it again soon !! The marinara sauce blended with the pasta and cheeses very nicely . A wonderful meatless meal !!
