D-Feast Friday - Comfort Mac N Cheese

My all time favorite home made Mac n Cheese Recipe

2-1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni. (I use whole wheat sometimes)
6 tablespoons of butter, divided
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 cups milk
1/2 jar (8 oz) Cheesy Ragu Double Cheddar Sauce
1-1/3 cups small curd cottage cheese
2/3 cup sour cream
2 cups (8 oz) shredded Colby jack or mild cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.  Place in greased 2-1/2 quart baking dish.  In saucepan, melt 4 tbsp of butter.  Stir in flour, salt and sugar until smooth.  Gradually stir in milk.  Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Reduce heat; stir in cheddar sauce, cottage cheese and sour cream.  Pour over macaroni.  Sprinkle with Colby jack cheese.  Melt remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs; sprinkle over top.  Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Makes about 8 servings.

Sounds yummy, but we have yet to introduce Mac and Cheese to Elise because I'm afraid of what it will do to her BG and what is she really, really loves it??? Sometimes ignorance is bliss!
