Noodles & Cottage Cheese

If you do not like Cottage Cheese, this recipe is not for you.  But if you do, get ready for the easiest, most delicious comfort meal of your life. I grew up eating this for lunch. It is a recipe that came from my namesake, Grandma Liz. She was my Great Grandmother, Liz Federbush, born in Austria in 1898. She brought this recipe all the way to Cincinnati, Ohio. This recipe is my only connection to her, since I never got to meet her.  I’ve successfully converted my husband and children to lovers of this simple dish and I hope I can covert you too.  If you like cottage cheese please try this!
