Ultrawhite Noodles


  • Makes4 to 4 servings

No lurking onion. No hidden green pepper. No invisible zucchini. It's ultrawhite, perfectly innocent and delicious.


  • 1 375-g pkg broad egg noodles, (crinkly or twisted ones, if possible)

  • 2 cups cottage cheese, (1% or 2%)

  • 1 cup sour cream, (regular or low fat)

  • 1 cup Parmesan, grated

  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped (optional - green bits aaaagh!)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Cook the noodles in plenty of boiling salted water until done, drain in a colander and dump into a large bowl. Add the cottage cheese, sour cream, ½ cup (125 mL) of the Parmesan cheese, the chives and the salt and pepper. Have your child stir until everything is thoroughly mixed together.

  • Scoop noodle mixture into a greased 9 in. (22 cm) square baking dish (or a casserole of similar size). Sprinkle the top with the remaining ½ cup (125 mL) Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 30 to 35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
