Trying a new recipe each Sunday is easy when some of them are like this:
Home-Baked Macaroni and Cheese
1 pkg (14oz) Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided in half
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
6 Ritz crackers, crushed (about 1/4 cup)
1 T butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare dinner as directed on package. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese, the sour cream and pepper
Spoon into greased casserole dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and combined cracker crumbs and butter. Bake 20 min. Let stand 5 min before serving.
The photo does not do it justice. How could something so loaded with cheese and sour cream not be good!? It was delicious and an easy make! I'm sure there is some way to make it less artery clogging. Just use low fat everything. I'm not sure how much better it will be for you but at least you'll feel better about eating it.
This recipe was from one of my favorite recipe sources: Kraft Food & Family magazine. It's free (sign up here) and the recipes in it are awesome because they're so easy!
