*I prefer homemade noodles over store bought.

Note: There are many versions of this recipe floating around with much too much salt and butter. Fat free cottage cheese works here just as well as regular cottage cheese and adding more than 1/8 cup of butter will just make the casserole swim in butter. Placed in the fridge overnight will help the noodles to absorb all that 1+ cup butter, but just think where all that butterfat ultimately ends up – in the arteries.
