This recipe uses some of my favorite cheeses and gives a real gourmet feel to everyday mac & cheese. I hope you enjoy!
  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2½ cups 2% milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded park-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 pkg. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk and seasonings.
  3. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Reduce heat; add cheeses and stir until melted. Stir in sour cream.
  5. Drain macaroni and stir into cheese sauce.
This recipe can also be baked with a crumb topping. Place macaroni in a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Combine ⅓ cup seasoned bread crumbs and 2 Tbsp. melted butter; sprinkle over macaroni. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Tip: If your macaroni is done long before you cheese sauce, rinse it in cold water to stop the pasta from continuing to cook and becoming gummy.
