No Boil Macaroni & Cheese

Last night, I had an experiment, my father in law thought would work. I always
make my lasagna by not boiling the noodles, and he thought it would work for macaroni and cheese too. Guess what...it did...who knew :)

This is my normal recipe for macaroni and cheese. I just added a little more liquid to be on the safe side, covered it the first 45 min with foil, like I do my lasagna. It turned out delicious.

Usually, everyone has their own famous macaroni and cheese recipe. If you do, just add 1/2 c more liquid and cover with foil. Try it and let me know how it goes for you. Enjoy!

2 Cups Uncooked Wheat Noodles (Any Kind)
1 Cup Cottage Cheese
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Water
3 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Tbsp Butter
1/2 tsp black Pepper
1/2 tsp salt
2 Eggs

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Spray a 2qt Casserole dish with spray oil
  • In a large bowl, beat with a hand mixer, Cottage Cheese, Milk, Water, Eggs, Salt & Pepper until creamy
  • Stir in 2 1/2 Cups of Cheddar Cheese
  • Stir in uncooked noodles
  • Pour into casserole dish
  • Top with remaining cheddar cheese
  • Cut up your into butter, place chunks on top of cheese
  • Cover with foil bake for 45 min
  • Uncover and continue baking an additional 45 min until noodles are tender and starts to brown
*Something you can always do with Mac & Cheese, to make it a dinner, is add in meats and veggies like Tuna & Peas, Ham & Tomatoes, or Salsa.
