Three-Cheese Spirals

Sour cream and three kinds of cheese create the creamy coating for this tasty "twist" on macaroni and cheese. It calls for only six ingredients and can be served as an entree or a side dish. —Deb Collette Holland, Ohio

    I made this tonight and it's delicious! I used Chipotle flavor sour cream and that gave it a nice kick. I'm sure it's great with regular sour cream too. It makes a lot so I'm giving some to my daughter and her family.

    My kids and I hated this recipe. The texture was off not creamy. I think it had a lot to do with the shredded cheddar cheese.
