My mom used to prepare this for us when we were kids. It's good on summer days as a snack or main course.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare macaroni according to package instructions.
  2. (You can substitute seashell pasta, anything up to bowtie pasta size, if you like. But please don't use long pastas like spaghetti or fettucini-- they just don't work with this.) Combine cottage cheese, sugar, and cinnamon with drained macaroni.
  3. Taste and add sugar/cinnamon, if necessary.
  4. Serve immediately.

What a surprisingly great recipe! I thought it might be too sweet, but the cottage cheese and sugar went very well together. A great packed lunch item because it tasted just as good cold :) Thanks!
