Baked Mac & Cheese

Hey Everyone – I thought I’d share what I made for a couple of weeks ago! It’s a super easy baked mac and cheese. I first had this recipe at my friend Melissa’s house. I was shocked when she told me it had cottage cheese in it. It seems weird but I promise it’s super yummy! Trust me!

  • 1/2 lb macaroni noodles (I was out of macaroni noodles so I used whole wheat penne)
  • 1 C. Cottage cheese
  • 1 C. Sour cream (I prefer Daisy brand – it doesn’t have a bunch of additives)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 C. Shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×9 Square pan or something similar in size.

Cook noodles until al dente, drain well. Meanwhile in a large bowl combine, sour cream, cottage cheese, egg, salt, pepper, nutmeg & 1/2 the cheese. Add the well-drained noodles to the cheese mixture and mix well. Transfer to prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
