The addition of cottage cheese and sour cream turns the ordinary macaroni and cheese into a deliciously creamy casserole. To counter the mild cottage cheese, a sharp cheddar is also used in this great macaroni and cheese recipe.

Makes 6 Generous Portions

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 8 oz dry elbow macaroni
  • 1 1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil and cook the pasta one minute less that the directions call for. Drain very well and add to a 9 x 12 inch baking dish

  2. Stir in the cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, sour cream, milk, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. In a small bowl, stir the bread crumbs and melted butter together. Sprinkle evenly over the top, and bake for 35 minutes, or until top is golden brown and bubbling.

Fast and Delicious!!!, Member kidletsmom3

The kids didn't even notice the cottage cheese in this recipe. The fact that all the ingredients are mixed together into the casserole dish makes this dish quick and easy to prepare. We all thought it was delicous. We had no leftovers but I would bet that this tastes even better the next day. The sauce was a little thin when I took it out of the oven but after sitting with tin foil on top for 10 minutes it was perfect.
