I am here today to share one of my families all time favorite recipes with you! This Mac & Cheese is one that has stayed on our weekly meal schedule for years! It not only makes enough to feed a small village, we love it for leftovers and lunches throughout the week. (I would cut the receipt in half if your feeding less then 10 people.)
2 Zuchinis, 1 1/2 Sweet onion, 1 Head of cauliflour, 2 cloves of minced garlic, chopped and sautéed together (until tender but not mushy) in butter with salt and pepper.
Boil 24 ounces (two bags) of egg noodles until directed time, make sure you don’t overcook the noodles, strain and put back in pot. Add the following to the hot and cooked noodles:
2 pints ounces of cottage cheese
1 pint ounces of sour cream
8 ounces of cream cheese
1 1/2 cup shredded mozerella
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Add salt, pepper (I like it peppery) and red pepper flakes to taste
Mix everything together and put in two 9×13 pans
sprinkle with mozeralla cheese and garlic salt
Cook uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes.
There are many variations of this that we enjoy, sometimes we add bacon, or sausage, or ham. Other times we top it with bread crumbs and jalapeños. You can also top it with fresh basil or cilantro! That’s one of things I love about this recipe, you can be creative and mix it up!
I would love to hear how you get creative with this recipe!
Love from my family’s table to yours,
