Mac n cheese

November 22, 2010

My first attempt at homemade mac n cheese.  The cottage cheese was a little off putting when I mixed it in but definitely added to the creaminess.  I sprinkled a few crumbled croutons on top to add a little crunch.


1/2 small onion, minced (I used a whole onion)

2 T butter

1 T flour

dash black or white pepper (I used a few shakes – love pepper!)

1 C milk

2 C shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 C cottage cheese


Cook 12 oz pasta in lightly salted rumbling boiling water. Drain.


Melt butter and add onion, cook until clear, add flour and pepper, stir everything together and add the cup of milk.  Stir until mixture is boiling and thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in both cheeses.  Add drained pasta and mix well.  Add mixture to well buttered dish and sprinkle top with cheddar, romano or parmesan cheese or if you have a favorite topping.

Cover and bake @ 350 for 25 – 30 min. Remove the cover the last 10 minutes if you would like a firm top.
