1 ½ c. cottage cheese
1 (8 oz) sour cream (sometimes I think it's too sour creamy so I often just do ¾ c) or do half plain yogurt and it's good
4 c. cooked elbow macaroni (2 1/2 c uncooked)
1 green onion, chopped (I usually just use regular onion, quite a bit like half-a whole onion)
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 c (8 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
½ c milk
1 large egg
bread crumbs (opt)
Process cottage cheese and sour cream in the blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides (can skip this step)
Combine cottage cheese mixture , macaroni, and next 6 ingredients; spoon into a 2- quart baking dish covered with cooking spray. Top with breadcrumbs and paprika.
Cover and bake at 400 for 20 min. Uncover and bake 5 more.
