  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the egg noodles according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onions are translucent.
