Ranch Mac and Cheese

Along with procrastinating almost everything this past month, I totally spaced out on the Sunday Mac and Cheese recipe posts I planned on doing. Duh!  Well, I'm back on track (I hope), so here is a of the M & C recipes my family loves...
RANCH MAC AND CHEESE
  • 1 (16 oz.) package elbow macaroni
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper (or amount you prefer)
  • 1 c. Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 c. Colby cheese, shredded
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 c. crushed Ritz crackers
 
Cook macaroni according to package directions, until just al dente.  Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the milk, butter, dressing mix and seasonings. Heat thoroughly.  Stir in the jack and Colby cheeses until they are melted. Stir in the sour Cream.
Drain the cooked pasta, and stir into the cheese sauce, along with the cracker crumbs.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.
