Herbed Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Publisher Photo
Besides being a really easy recipe to make, it tastes very good, too! This is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill macaroni and cheese. The herbs and spices, along with the sour cream, give the dish a wonderful flavor. Serving it with toasted pita bread and salad makes this one of our family's favorite meals, and it's been in the family for a very long time!

MY REVIEW

"I used Muenster cheese, then instead of bread crumbs, I used crushed White Cheddar Cheez-its. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Took it to a church pot luck and didn't bring a bit home."
