Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

This is about the easiest (and maybe healthiest) macaroni and cheese you'll ever make. It has only four ingredients, it's high in protein and takes one dish to prepare.

The Easiest Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

1 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese

16 ounces of uncooked elbow macaroni

16 ounces water

16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a 9 x 13 casserole dish and stir it up good. Cook at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and stir thoroughly. Be sure to stir and scrape the sides well or it won't turn out as creamy as it should. Put back in the oven for another 20-30 minutes. Keep a good eye on it after the 20 minute mark and cook until pasta is just done or it will dry out.

Should this be cooked covered with foil?
Thanks,
