Ranch Macaroni and Cheese

11 Jan

I’m sure by now you must know of my love for all things ranch. This recipe was quite tasty. The ranch flavor is not overwhelming at all, it just adds a little something different to plain old mac and cheese. We will be repeating this in our house in the future, it was very good. I cut this recipe in half and still had leftovers, it makes alot!

1 pound macaroni

1 cup milk  (I used skim)

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese

1 cup shredded Colby cheese (I used cheddar)

1 cup sour cream (I used light)

1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the milk, butter, ranch, garlic powder, and salt and pepper; heat through. Stir in Monterey jack and Colby cheeses until melted. Stir in sour cream.

Drain macaroni; stir into cheese sauce with the Ritz crackers. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
