Ranch Mac 'n' Cheese

I came up with the recipe for this creamy and satisfying macaroni and cheese, which has a special twist. My husband requests it often - it's hearty enough to serve as a main dish. -Michelle Rotunno, Independence, Missouri

cup butter or margarine
2 envelopes ranch salad dressing mix
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic pepper blend
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup cubed Colby cheese
1 cup cubed Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
cup crushed saltines
1 pound elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
