Old-fashioned Macaroni

Recipe by Cher Jewhurst
READY IN: 25mins




  • Place water in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave, covered, at high for 10 minutes to bring to boil.
  • Add the macaroni, stir and cover.
  • Microwave 7 to 8 minutes at high.
  • Stir, cover and let stand 3 minutes.
  • Drain.
  • Place half the cooked macaroni in a buttered 6-cup microwave-safe baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with half the cheese, top with half the sour cream and dot with half the butter.
  • Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Microwave, uncovered at high for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • My notes: I cook macaroni on stove top instead of microwaving it.
  • My microwave is so old it takes forever to boil water.
  • I also will mix up the cheese sometimes using different cheddars but it's really great if you use some freshly grated pecorini cheese as well in the mix.
