  • Yield: 12-16 servings 1x


This Macaroni and Cheese is creamy, crazy good and so simple to make. It’s my boys favorite mac-n-cheese of all time. A buttery crumb topping makes it even that much better.


  • 3 cups dry elbow macaroni
  • 16 oz. Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
  2. Fill large pot with slightly salted water.  Bring to a boil, add elbow macaroni and cook 8 minutes.  Drain well.
  3. In large bowl pour cooked macaroni and add cubed Velveeta, cheddar cheese soup, sour cream, parmesan cheese, milk,  and salt & pepper.  Stir well and pour into prepared baking dish.  (There will still be cubes of Velveeta that don’t melt completely).
  4. Mix Ritz cracker crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle on top.
  5. Cover with foil and bake about 25-30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake 5-10 more minutes.
