Recipe by Pam Anderson
"Make two meals at once with this kid-friendly dish. You can liven up the second casserole by stirring in ham and peas, or shredded cooked chicken, or pretty much anything you have on hand."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (16 ounce) package
2 (8 ounce) packages
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 (12 ounce) containers
small curd cottage cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
1 (16 ounce) container
1 1/2 cups
dry bread crumbs
I used ricotta instead of the cottage cheese. I also used 1/2 of the sour cream because I felt it was saucy enough. The butter/bread crumb mixture was too much for my taste. Because of the rich flavor, I would just sprinkle 3-4 TBS of bread crumbs on at the last 10 minutes of baking time. However, it is a great recipe with a few common ingredients. Just as easy and MUCH better than Kraft!!!!
This was pretty good. I did a few things different though, and it tasted great. Instead of cottage cheese I substituted with some ricotta cheese (half of a small container) and I used cheddar, colby jack and Velveeta cheese with just a hint of parmesean and ommitted the topping. I would add either more sour cream or some milk to this next time to get a creamier texture. It was a bit dry after baking. Thanks for sharing:)
I didn't have cheddar, so used velveeta, also added grated swiss,and Monteray Jack/mixed with colby, also put a pinch of cayenne and ground dry mustard, melted some butter with a bit of milk, seemed a bit dry without it. REALLY GREAT! Thanks for sharing
I made half the recipe, and it was okay. Not bad, but I got tired of eating it. Too tangy for my taste, so if I ever try it again I'll cut back on the sour cream.
I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. Was real good and made a nice lunch for the next few days. I like my Mac and Cheese more "cheddary", but this was good. Maybe next time I will add some southwestern chicken pieces.
This mac and cheese is delicious! We add cubed cooked ham to make it more substantive. I don't like the crust however, too buttery, not crunchy enough...
