This was my favorite recipe when I was growing up, and now my children love it.
- Cook elbows according to package directions.
- Cook one package of bacon and crumble into little pieces.
- Stir together elbows, bacon pieces and cottage cheese.
My mom and my grandmother made this all the time when I was growing up and I am almost 60 and I still love it, so easy and simple to make.
I'm not really a fan of plain cottage cheese, but this was wonderful! I halved the recipe, only used 1 cup elbows, 1 cup cottage cheese and 3 slices of turkey bacon. Delicious! Will be making this often since it is so easy.
I have made this recipe for many years, with the exclusion of the bacon, which sounds wonderful, by the way. The butter that I have always used, will be replaced with the bacon. Thanks.
