1 8-inch square pan

Ingredients

  • 4 cups egg noodles

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup brown sugar, or more to taste

  • 1 (16 ounce) package cottage cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain.
