Baked Noodles and Cottage Cheese Casserole

Makes 6 servings

• 8 ounces noodles, cooked al dente (equal to about 4 ounces raw pasta)
• 3/4 cup Penn Maid® Lowfat Cottage Cheese
• 1/4 cup Lowfat Milk
• 1 Tbsp butter, melted
• 2 Tbsp chives, chopped
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
• Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cook the noodles al dente and cool to room temperature. Place the cooked noodles into a bowl and toss with 1/2 cup of the cottage cheese, milk, melted butter, chives and garlic. Season this mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Spray an 8” x 8” baking dish with nonstick cooking spray lightly on the bottom and sides. Place the noodle mixture into this dish and top with the remaining cottage cheese spreading this evenly from end to end. Top evenly with breadcrumbs and then sprinkle with paprika. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
