This is great and so easy to make! My kids loved it! The only change i made was no putting the topping on.

I loved how easy it was! Next time I am going to go less on the sour cream because the flavor overwhelmed the cheese and I added an extra 4 ounces of cheese.

This made a nice creamy mac and cheese. I did leave out the cottage cheese (it was 2 weeks expired) and didn't do the corn flakes topping. Nice simple creamy cheesey macaroni!

My picky son absolutely loves this recipe! I think it's funny that some people omit what he believes to be the best part, the corn flake topping. Everyone has their own tastes, though, right? I did add a dash of garlic powder and extra shredded cheddar. We also like to add chicken and broccoli to make this a complete meal.

Loved it, but we used a box of macaroni, 2 pkgs of Kraft mixed shredded cheese, and panko breadcrumbs with two tablespoons butter microwave a few seconds and stir then when it cools add a bit of fresh Parmesan sprinkle over top of mac and cheese.
