I just made this for lunch, and oh boy! This was good stuff! I was extremely skeptical about using sour cream and cottage cheese (as I hate both) and the lack of a roux to make the cheese sauce, but this turned out fabulously! It really tasted just as great as my regular baked mac and cheese, except even creamier!
I did make some small changes as I wanted a healthier recipe. I used low fat sour cream and cottage cheese, and half the butter and breadcrumbs for the topping. I also blended the cottage cheese and sour cream in a food processor until perfectly smooth before mixing it with the cheese and pasta. The addition of sour cream and cottage cheese definitely increased the protein in this dish as compared to regular mac and cheese. With the minor changes one serving came in at just under 300 calories!
