"After searching for years, I have found the ultimate mac-and-cheese recipe. Use low fat or fat free ingredients if desired. Tastes great either way. For variation, omit Worcestershire sauce, and add 1 tablespoon yellow or brown mustard."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Oh my god, this was delicious! I left out the Worcestershire sauce though, and added colby jack to the list of cheeses. :) I put one cup of colby jack and one cup of cheddar. I loved this so much I've eaten it all tonight and am going to make some more tommorow!
This dish has really good cheesy flavor but I would definetly suggest covering it with foil. The noodles were really dried out and crunchy which made my family and I not finish our plate.
I switched the cottage cheese for Lite Ricotta because I dislike the curd texture. Yummy.
Have made it twice. I will add it to my "recipes to repeat" binder. I always add a little more cheese than recipes call for but then, I'm a cheese freak. We used no yolk egg noodles and it worked out just great. Its filling too, so a small portion goes a long way.
I love this recipe. I do modify it a bit, however. It is really good with small/medium shell noodles. I like to use a mixture of mild and sharp cheddar cheese. I also like to sprinkle the top with paprika and bake it a bit longer to get rid of the cottage cheese texture. In addition, i use no-fat cottage cheese and reduced fat sour cream. It is delicious.
this is an easy basic mac n cheese recipe that tastes great!!! plus in the world of mac n cheese this one is actaully pretty healthy since you can use fat free products....i have been making this recipe for my family for over a year now....i use mustard and worchire and i always add extra cheese to it because i never remember to save some for the top...i also add onion and sometimes garlic...sometimes the noodles come out a little crunchy on top but that is how i know it is doner ...my family loves the extra little crunch :) if you are a picky eater or have texture issues this may not be a good recipe for you....my family loves it but we are not picky...we usually eat pretty healthy so this is junk food for us....very yummy and easy to change the flavor to your own personal taste..and one more thing i think that the cottage cheese is one of the things that make this dish great i think that rocatta would give it a very different flavor....
While browsing Mac-N-Cheese recipes, found this...it's almost exactly what my grandfather used to make me years ago. Very different from regular Mac-N-Cheese. If you like cottage cheese,you'll like this. Brought back memories and what an easy recipe! Thanks, KIM!
Really liked this, made it to pack in my lunch for the week or to grab a quick somethin' somethin' in the evenings. I did substitute ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese but everything else was ledt the same. I never use cottage cheese in a dish like this, guess that's just how I was raised.
