  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the noodles uncovered, stirring occasionally, until they are cooked through, but still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a large casserole dish.
  3. Mix the noodles, cottage cheese, sour cream, onion, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and salt together in a large bowl. Spread mixture in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and paprika on top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 30 minutes.

My Hungarian family always made this dish too! We added sugar to taste for a little sweeter flavor.

Excellent recipe!!! I leave out the poppy seeds, add at least one teaspoon of chopped garlic, add one pkg of smoked sausage cut into cubes and sprinkle the entire top with Parmesan cheese! Add a salad and a piece of bread! Love it!

Just out of the oven. I'm serving with kielbasa. Yum

This is such a tasty dish! I usually grind the poppy seeds in my coffee grinder for a better flavor and texture. A great meatless dish. As another reviewer mentioned, you can make it sweet or salty. We usually make the sweet version (no onions or parmesan cheese, extra sugar, walnuts, extra poppy seeds).

This is a definite make again, however I did leave out the poppy seed as well.
