This is a complete meal. It is great for a cold winter evening.

1 package (7-1/4 ounces) macaroni and cheese dinner mix
3/4 c. soft bread crumbs
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. cubed fully cooked ham
1 c. (8 ounces) cream-style cottage cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
2 tbsp. sliced green onion
1 tbsp. diced pimientos, optional
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground mustard

Prepare macaroni dinner mix according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley and butter; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the macaroni and cheese, ham, cottage cheese, sour cream, green onion, pimientos if desired, salt and mustard. Pour into a greased 1-1/2 qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumb mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
