I'm always on a lookout for ways to add extra protein to a recipe (we get plenty of protein, it's just better for me so I eat less). This mac and cheese recipe has been evolving since we got married.
The secret is cottage cheese. I know, that sounds crazy but cottage cheese is low calorie and realllly high in protein. Even though we both hate it, when mixed into mac and cheese you can't even tell it's cottage cheese and it's sooo good.

**This is pictured with regular italian breadcrumbs. Usually I use panko.
