This is the best macaroni and cheese recipe!

HazelÂs Macaroni and Cheese

1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (I use mild)
1 cup Velvetta cheese (cut up)
1 cup cooked macaroni (add more if you wish)

Mix all ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

I haven't tried to freeze it yet, but I think it would do just fine.

Here's a couple for you - the broccoli and rice casserole can be frozen prior to baking. Not sure how the soup would do freezing with the potatoes.
