This is a great recipe that has been passed down from my Grandmother, to my Mom, and to Me. You'll never go back to Mac and Cheese in a box!

This was really tasty. I did change it a little as I grated cheese and melted it first so I would not get clumps of cheese and I used 2 cans of cheddar cheese. Made for PAC FAll 2012

This was delicious!!!! I loved the little tang to it from the sour cream!!! Will definately be making again and again!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

The family didn't care for the slight tang the sour cream added but that's just personal taste and not a reflection on the recipe itself. Made for PAC 2008
