Writers' Recipe of the Month

Yes, it’s February. Time for chocolates and wondering why you even bothered making that New Year’s resolution. Below is a light southern version of homemade macaroni. It is a family favorite here at the Thorne house, so skip the treats and indulge in some comfort food to feed your mind.

Baked Macaroni

2 cups of elbow macaroni, boiled until tender and drained
2 cups of cottage cheese
2 cups of sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of low-fat sour cream
1 beaten egg (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients smoothly and spread into a greased 9X13 pan. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes on 350 degrees. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.

Hm--check my blog for my Menu of Last Resort. I guess great (hungry) minds think alike!

Looks delicious, Dani. I'll have to try it. Macaroni and cheese has always been one of my favorite comfort foods.
