We have always made this recipe. My Hungarian grandmother made it and it was always with cottage cheese; no other type of cheese. Noodle, butter, salt and pepper and cottage cheese. Mix together and stir over a very low heat for a minute or so
When I was growing up my grandma made this dish, either when it was too hot to cook/turn on the oven - or a quick meal. I still make it to this day, & always smile when I think of her.
Boil about a pkg of broad & drain. Add salt & pepper & a good dose of butter. Stir the butter into the hot cooked noodles until the butter is melted. Mix in cold cottage cheese & eat it while the noodles are still hot.
My grandma may have used pot cheese or farmer cheese (don't recall). I use low fat small curd cottage cheese.
If you're feeling really wild & adventurous, lol, sprinkle some Paprika over the top. Get a fork and eat out of the pot when no one is looking.
I have a recipe for homemade egg noodles. Someday, when I have a chance will have to give it a try for this dish.
Note: The dish does not reheat well, as the cottage cheese gets gluey/sticky. So... eat it all while it's hot. I've used spaghetti in place of the broad egg noodles, but it's not really the same.[/QUOTE]
