3 cup Elbow Macaroni Noodles

3 tablespoon Butter
1 small Onion; chopped
1 cup Mushroom; sliced
2 1/2 cup Cheddar; grated
1 1/2 cup Cottage cheese

Original recipe makes 3 Servings



Oven Temp: 350F / 180F / Gas mark 4

Preheat oven.

Toast sunflower seeds in oil in a skillet until golden, and season with a sprinkle of salt.

Boil macaroni for half the required time. (For small shells about 3 minutes.) Macaroni should still have a definite chew to it, because it will continue to cook in the oven.

Saute onions until light golden in color and add mushrooms, saute another 4 minutes. Stir all ingredients together well and spoon into a greased baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes and cover with breadcrumbs. Bake another 10 minutes and garnish with raw green bell pepper or parsley.
