I was so surprised when I did not see this already posted. My granddaughter had it for lunch at my house and later looked at this site and asked why I didn't have it posted. Yeah, why didn't I? **I have not found pot cheese in regular supermarkets, just specialty stores. If you cannot get it, use a cottage cheese that is as dry as possible.

My grandmother used to make this for us when we were kids. It was my FAVORITE meal! I'm going to start making this instead of traditional macaroni and cheese. This will make a great Friday night meatless dinner during Lent. If I'm not mistaken, my grandmother used to put the whole noodle cheese combination in the oven for a little bit after mixing. It made a nice baked casserole. That was a real comfort food! It will be a comfort for me to make this recipe and remember my wonderful grandmother!
