So I tried this recipe and boy did it deliver! My husband told me that when he was done eating it was so good that he was sad that the meal was ending! This “creamy macaroni and cheese recipe” from the New York Times is easily the best that I have ever made. The cottage cheese definitely adds a distinct creaminess, and adds much needed protein to the dish. I also read the comments on the recipe before I made the dish (over 3000 people recommended it and many commented about it). Several recommended that I use the ‘youngest’ cheddar possible, because aged cheddar will make the dish drier. I bought shredded cheddar from Trader Joes. It worked perfectly.
I served this scrumptious macaroni and cheese with steamed broccoli on the side. We also had celebratory mudslides, just because.
I was so happy with the way that this dish came out. It is definitely one I will repeat! I am really looking forward to giving some to my daughter tomorrow. She loves mac and cheese!
