This dish really needs no introduction, macaroni and cheese is popular pretty much everywhere. As you probably already know from experience, most of the boxed Mac and cheese can be rather disappointing. Here is a homemade version and somewhat of a different take on the classic dish. This recipe uses three different types of cheeses- sharp cheddar, parmesan, and cottage cheese. Best of all, this dish is so easy to make and is perfect for a quick meal. This is also perfect for a dinner party or event. Enjoy.
1 (8 ounce) package elbow macaroni
1 (8 ounce) package shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (12 ounce) container small curd cottage cheese

1 cup dry breadcrumbs
¼ cup butter (melted)
