Healthy(ish) Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe name: Healthy(ish) Mac and Cheese
Source: no idea
Servings: 4
Cookbook date: October 15

8-10 oz cooked macaroni
8 oz shredded sharp cheese
12 oz cottage cheese
8 oz plain yogurt
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.

In a 9x13 pan, stir together cooked macaroni, cheeses, yogurt, Parmesan and salt and pepper. Put foil on top and bake for 30 minutes. That's it!

I made this for the first time last night, and I absolutely love it. I'm not going to tell you that it is the very best mac and cheese that I've ever had, because that's not true. But it is most definitely the easiest homemade macaroni and cheese I've ever made, and given that it doesn't contain any butter or heavy cream, it tastes AWESOME. I suppose it isn't exactly accurate to call this a "healthy" meal, but I really think this is a great recipe to use when you want some comfort food, but you want to skip the guilt that comes from eating something with enough calories in it to sustain you for 3 days straight!
