Mac and Cheese!

on January 16, 2015

Ever look in your cabinet and all you have is Mac and Cheese from a box? But no milk in the fridge? Never fear! You CAN have a complete, filling meal with a box of mac and cheese. The secret? Cottage cheese. Yup, you read that right.

Tuesday night’s dinner went like this:

Boil macaroni from box and strain. Add cheese packet and cottage cheese. I used probably about a cup. The more you add, the creamier it will be. We don’t mind if the curdles are in there, but if you do, simply keep heating it over low heat until it melts all the way down, or run it through a food processor before adding to the pot. The breadcrumbs shown below are a couple of slices of stale bread mixed with Italian herbs and run through the food processor.


So yummy!
