While my parents were staying with us I had to cook fast and nutritious meals for all of us. Having octogenarian parents I thought I'd make comfort foods that they've enjoyed in their earlier years. This is a simple recipe and all the ingredients are right from the pantry.
1 container cottage cheese (12 oz.)
12 ounce finely shredded cheeses (Monterey Jack, Colby, Cheddar & Mozzarella) * (can be substituted with cheese of your own choice)
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 Cup breadcrumbs (plain or flavored)
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside in a bowl.
Combine all cheeses in a large bowl and using an infusion blender process them until smooth. Add this mixture to pasta and stir well. Pour this mixture into a well greased baking dish. Combine Parmesan cheese with bread crumbs and oil in a small bowl and spread evenly over pasta mixture. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or heated through and the top is browned.
