1 pack of elbow macaroni
1 large container of cottage cheese
1 small container of sour cream
1 beaten egg
3/4 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
8oz of cheddar cheese or more

preheat the oven to 350

boil and drain the mac
combine cottage cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper, macaroni and most of the cheese in a big bowl. place in a greased 2quart oblong pan and top with the rest of the cheese and sprinkle on paprika. bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until cheese and noodles start to brown on top.

now you can also mix in a chopped up hot dog, some bacon, some garlic, or whatever you feel like. also, the cheese, paprika, salt and pepper don't need to be exact. more cheese is always good, and another egg should make it a little more fluffy.
