This Million Dollar Mac & Cheese really lives up to its name. It tastes like a million bucks. You can make this casserole ahead of time and refrigerate for later. I live for make ahead dishes like this!

If you aren’t a fan of cottage cheese, you can swap it out for ricotta. I don’t eat cottage cheese out of the container, but I absolutely LOVE it in casseroles. If you have a cottage cheese hater, don’t tell them that it is in here. They will never know it’s there once it is mixed in with the cream cheese and sour cream.

  1. I made this today using Ricotta instead of cottage cheese. I didn't do a layer of the cheese mixture, but rather mixed everything together, and it was great! Delicious recipe.

  2. Very interesting combination of cheeses for mac and cheese. I haven't seen that before. Thanks very much for that idea.
