This is a dish I grew up with, from my Hungarian Grandma. It is not an actual "recipe" as there are no exact measurements. I've shared the idea and story so many times in discussions, but never posted the idea/recipe.
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 egg noodles
& 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.
