What was your first??

Recipe that is!! Amelia asked me the other day what the first recipe I cooked was. And, surprise I actually remembered. It was a dish called Noodle Casserole. Very gourmet, I know! I even found the recipe card in my old, torn up, recipe card box. Don't you love how well-loved it is?? Ahhh, I just love cookbook pages and recipe cards that you can tell have been used a million times. They are just stained with love :) Well, my little chef-in-training wanted to try it out. So, we set off to my home away from home, aka "the grocery store". There could not be an easier recipe. Amelia is eating it as an afternoon snack as I write this!

1 stick butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 green onions; chopped
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley
2 cups cottage cheese
1/3 cup parmesan
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound flat noodles

Boil noodles in salted water until al dente. While noodles are cooking. Mix together everything but the butter and parmesan. Put mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle with parmesan then drizzle with the butter. Cover with foil, and cook at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy :)

* To make it a little more substantial, add some shredded chicken from a rotisseire chicken and/or some sauteed mushrooms*
