This recipe is very similar to the Dee’s Mac and Cheese recipe on the page before this one, only this recipe is cooked in a glass pan in the oven instead of in a crock pot, and cooks in only half an hour instead of two and a half hours. For whatever reason I usually end of making this one instead of the crock pot version, but both are delicious. Neither are remotely healthy.
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sour cream, egg, salt, garlic salt and pepper. Add cheddar cheese; mix well. Add macaroni and stir until coated. Transfer to a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with paprika if desired.
