What's For Dinner Easiest Mac and Cheese Ever

Recently I spotted at one of my favorite blogs a recipe for an Easy Mac and Cheese recipe.

I have to admit I have never made Mac and Cheese and I am not a fan of the box stuff. So to say the least I very rarely have it.
Well I do love Mac and Cheese.. my late ex mother in law use to make it for us over 40 years ago and of course anything she made I loved.
So tonight I gave the recipe a try and I LOVED IT .. grandson did not but he is the fussiest one. The cottage cheese does give it a different texture.
I have made a copy of the recipe from her site and here it is
World's Easiest Macaroni and Cheese!
1 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese
16 ounces of uncooked elbow macaroni
16 ounces water
16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese Put Cottage Cheese in 9 x 13 cake pan. Add Macaroni. Add Water. Add shredded cheese. Stir together. Place in preheated 350 degree oven. Take out after 30 minutes and stir. Test macaroni for doneness. If it needs more time try for 10 more minutes. Don't overbake or it will dry out.
Now I did not have a 9 by 13 cake pan so used a casserole and that worked out just fine.

This was a great recipe and we will make it again. Would be good with a Hebrew National Hot Dog I think.

What's For Dinner Cream Cheese Potato Soup

I had found this recipe on the Internet for Cream Cheese Potato Soup at I love Potato soup so gave it a try last night for dinner. It was very good. I had cut the recipe in half since there is only two of us. That was a mistake. We each had one bowl and no left overs.

The broth cooked down while cooking the potatoes so I had to add an extra 1 1/2 cups of water during the cooking process. This did not harm the recipe. I did not have any ground red pepper in the house either. This soup is a winner and will be made again during the winter, that is for sure.
I made my chicken broth out of Instant Bouillon so this keeps the cost down, I had bought the potatoes on sale a while back and the store brand cream cheese was $2.69 and I used only 1/2. I think this was great soup and was not costly at all. Why would I ever buy can potato soup again when this is so easy.
