Are there times when you have a little extra pasta left after dinner? Intentionally, I prep a bit extra and into the fridge it goes to be used in a side dish later in the week. Easy Cheesy Noodles is a fave in my home. It's an oldie but goodie that I posted here almost 2 years ago.
No, it doesn't take long to make, but it sure is a lot quicker if the pasta is already cooked. The precooked/refrigerated noodles need only be combined with a little Butter/Margarine, Pepper and 3/4 Cup Cottage Cheese in a microwave safe container with a cover. Before heating in the microwave, place the cover loosely on top with a little venting. Then, microwave for about 90 seconds. Carefully, stir after heating. Heat 30 seconds longer, if necessary.
The Cottage Cheese will "melt" if overheated. Yes, this can also be heated in a pot on the stove top.
There is usually a carton of "Chive & Toasted Onion" Cottage Cheese in my fridge - for snacking. Combined with the extra pasta at dinner - it's delicious and quick!
Easy Cheesy Noodles became even easier! :)
