I don't know where my mother-in-law found this recipe, but it is one of our favorite side dishes!
2 cups small curd cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 t. salt
garlic powder to taste
pepper to taste
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
7 oz. elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sour cream, egg, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Add cheddar cheese. Mix well. Add cooked macaroni and stir until coated. Transfer to a greased 2-1/2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
