How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cook macaroni in salted boiling water according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pour into a 3-qt. casserole.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk and sour cream. Add salt and pepper.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sauce bubbles and thickens.
  • Reserve 1 cup grated cheese for the top of the casserole. Toss macaroni with remaining cheese.
  • Pour sauce over macaroni and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle with reserved cheese.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until bubbly and brown.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Notes: Use sharp or a mix of Gruyere and white cheddar.
  • Asiago cheese is also nice in mac and cheese dishes.
  • Sliced ripe tomatoes and buttered bread crumbs would be a nice addition.
  • Mix in the additional shredded cheese before adding the tomatoes.
  • Can add ham and onions for a heartier dish.

    I am so excited to have found this recipe! I usually like adding in mushrooms, garlic and onions to mac & cheese, but this looks perfect with or without the additions! Thank you so much for sharing :)

    Hi Dandelion. Justjakesmom forwarded this recipe and to me it sounds wonderful. From reading the other comments, I don't understand either why someone would rate it so low. Some people are just plain cruel. I'll try and bump it up a few notches. I especially like the sound of tomatoes in this.

    Take care.

    Well I'm confused...thought you rate a recipe only if you try one...otherwise, when reading a recipe, you click on the "does this look good?" portion! Just reading the recipe, I would say this looks very good and would agree with you, only good ripe in-season tomatoes would do!
