I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Macaroni & Cheese

This is a good dish to bring to bring to a pot luck dinner, or to surprise a friend with. I find most kids like mac & cheese and love to see it at a party. It's also a quick dish for a busy day.


MACARONI & CHEESE (8)

Ingredients:
*1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni (use gluten free if needed)
*2 (8 ounce) package sharp cheddar cheese
*2 (12 ounce) container small curd cottage cheese
*1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
*1 cup milk
*1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
*1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Add macaroni noodles carefully to boiling, salted, water.
~Cook until noodles are done; drain.
~In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients.
~Add the mac & cheese to a 9x13 inch pan or a 2 quart baking dish.
~Bake 35-40 minutes.

Variations:
~Add sliced tomatoes on top of mac & cheese before baking.
