This is a quick and easy recipe if you are in a hurry -- just noodles, broccoli, cottage cheese and Cheddar. My daughter loves it. It's always a hit.

Very quick and easy! We added chicken and made it a mian dish (tuna would be good too). We also added some mushrooms garlic and onion. It took a little longer to cook with everything in it but it was worth the wait. Read More

This dish was extremely bland. It was dry and stuck to the pan. I wouldn't make this dish without some kind of cream soup mix. I don't recommend.. Even to vegetarians. sorry Read More

ok as is the recipe is lacking...but I added fresh mushrooms and ground turkey. Threw in some garlic powder and onion powder and about 3/4 cup of sun dried tomato alfredo sauce and it was delicious! Would never have thought to add cottage cheese to pasta but it rocked! Read More

I had a whole bunch of broccoli and cottage cheese and wanted to use them up for dinner. I found this recipe. I used elbow macarroni and added a good dash of garlic and onion powder to the mix. We were very happy. Read More

We give it 5 stars for its potential. It is rather bland when you take the first bite but flavor develops after chewing. The great thing about this recipe is that it is a wonderful starting base where you can get creative with adding other ingredients to give it more flavor. Our toddler was a fan. Read More

Wonderful recipe! I recommend it to everyone! I'm going to make this all the time now! My family liked it too. And it was so easy to make! One thing though I had to use a 3 quart baking dish instead of a 2 quart one. But that's no big deal at all! Read More

As written this would be pretty bad. But w/some mods it's a solid 4 stars. Here's what i did: 1/2 cottage cheese 1 can cream of mushroom several shakes of worcestshire one clove of garlic and about a 1/4 cup of parm cheese. I also halved the amount of noodles and used only a handful of cheddar. Mucccchhhhh better! Read More

We added a healthy dash of hot sauce one time and Cajun spices the next. Both really added something to this good basic recipe. Read More

It was a little bland...seemed to be missing something. Maybe garlic onions or other spices. Not bad but not the greatest. But thanks for sharing! Read More
