Ingredients

  • 2 Cups uncooked rotini pasta (the swirls hold the sauce better than regular macaroni)
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 Cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 1/4 Cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 Cup goat cheese crumbles
  • 1/2 Cup sour cream
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup whole milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 Cup seasoned breadcrumbs

Directions

Boil the macaroni in a 2-quart saucepan in plenty of water until tender, about 7-9 minutes. Drain. In a medium saucepan, mix butter and cheeses (reserve 1/4 cup of the Cheddar). Stir until the cheeses melt. Add the sour cream, salt, milk, mustard, garlic powder, and pepper to the butter/cheese mixture and stir well. Then add drained macaroni and mix well. Pour into a baking dish coated with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with remaining Cheddar cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Mac and Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Mac and Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
