Yet Another Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

I always buy the 5 lb cottage cheese from SAMS Club and am always looking for ways to use it up before it expires.  Tonight, I decided to make Mac and Cheese with it.  I looked up recipes and they all had cottage cheese, sour cream and cheese and TONS of fat.  Here is what went into mine:

1 lb rigatoni - cooked
1 1/2 c. cottage cheese
2 rounded soup spoons of reduced fat sour cream
4 soup spoons of skim milk
2 c. reduced fat cheddar cheese
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp tobasco sauce
Mix everything together and top with seasoned breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.  Bake at 350F until bubbly and then broil until golden brown.  Amelia had three helpings and “loved the cottage cheese”.  Danny preferred the “regular one” and I could eat either recipe every night for dinner.  Leo had plain macaroni noodles with parmesan :)
