"This recipe is great for nights when you get home and need something to wind down. 'Turos Csusza' is a Hungarian dish I learned from my Dad last year when I turned twelve. It consists of bacon, egg noodles, sour cream, and cottage cheese. 'Elvezet!'"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain well.
  3. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; drain, crumble, and set aside.
  4. Place the drained noodles in a large baking dish. Stir the sour cream into the noodles. Spoon the cottage cheese evenly over the top of the noodle mixture. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the top; season with salt.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cottage cheese softens, 3 to 5 minutes.

Charlee, this is really good! I didn't use bacon (because I didn't have any)...instead did as one reviewer suggested and caramelized onions. I added a little balsamic vinegar & brown sugar as ...

My mom was of Hungarian descent and used to make this all the time, minus the bacon. It was my comfort food growing up! Can be made even easier with just the noodles, cottage cheese, salt and pe...

I like to add some dried chives to this recipe. The flavor is subtle but very good.

I was a little nervous about the combo of ingredients. But I had a container of cottage cheese I needed to use and I was feeling adventurous! Boy, was I glad I tried it-my husband was REALLY h...
