Midwest 5 Cheese Bake


This Cheesy Pasta Bake is a lot like mac and cheese, but a little extra cheese and baked all together gives it a cozy vibe!


  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated Swiss
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated provolone
  • 8– ounces cream cheese, room temperature and cubed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9×13 baking dish lightly in nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the mozzarella, Swiss, Parmesan, provolone cheese, and cream cheese. Reserve 3/4 cup of the cheese mixture to use for topping. In a smaller bowl combine the sour cream, heavy cream, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and seasoned salt.
  3. Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain. Add hot pasta in the to bowl with the grated cheeses and add the sour cream mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until combined.
  4. Pour the pasta into the prepared dish and sprinkle with the reserved cheeses.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until all the cheese is melted and the topping is lightly golden.
  6. Serve immediately.


For best and most creamy results, don’t use pre-grated cheese in this recipe. Grate all the cheese fresh.
