Directions

Mozzarella and blue cheese macaroni:

Cook macaroni to al dente and set aside. Keep covered until ready for use. In a mixing bowl, prepare cream sauce by mixing together sour cream, heavy cream, flour, salt, pepper, mustard and egg. In a separate bowl, mix macaroni, oregano, thyme, blue cheese, half the mozzarella and peppers. Pour the cream sauce mixture over the macaroni and cheese and fold together until the pasta and cheese are covered. Add a layer of macaroni to a baking dish and cover with half the remaining mozzarella. Cover that layer with more macaroni and top it off with remaining mozzarella. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until top starts to brown. Serve immediately.

Classic mac-n-cheese:

Cook macaroni to al dente, cover and set aside. In a mixing bowl, prepare cream sauce by combining sour cream, heavy cream, flour, salt, pepper, mustard, and egg. In a separate bowl, mix macaroni with cubed sharp cheddar, half of the shredded sharp cheddar and cover with your cream sauce. Add a layer of macaroni to a baking dish and cover with sharp cheddar. Cover that layer with more macaroni and top it off with remaining sharp cheddar. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until top starts to brown and serve.

For a spicier version, replace 4 ounces of cubed sharp cheddar with pepper jack and top with crushed red pepper.
