I found this amazing noodle recipe that is just so easy to make, only drawback is that its time consuming and takes a couple of tries to get the noodles cooked right. (I dont have a set prep time for this because it all depends on how many noodles you want to make.) This is well worth the time spent and everyone will love it!

Ingredients

NOODLES:

8
eggs
3 c
water
3 c
flour
1 1/2 tsp
salt

CHEESE STUFFING:

2 pkg
cottage cheese (i use small curd)
2 pkg
shredded mozzarella cheese
2 or 3 dash(es)
italian seasoning
2 jar(s)
tomato sauce
if you have left over cheese stuffing place it around the noodles before you bake.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For the noodles I use a small non-stick frying pan and spray it with canola oil in between every noodle. You can use olive oil or Pam spray. Wait for the oil to bubble slightly on medium heat and pour noodle mixture into the center of the pan; tilting it in a circular motion to evenly coat the bottem of the pan in a thin layer.
2
As they come out of the pan add a new layer of parchment paper between the noodles so they do not stick together. Once all the noodles are ready and cooled down hold the round noodle in your hand and spoon cheese filling in a line on the noodle and roll up.
3
Set the finished noodles aside to cool and place 1 package of mozzarella cheese, both containers of cottage cheese, seasonings, and a little sauce in a large bowl and mix together for the filling.
4
Place ready noodles in a 13x9 glass baking dish (what I have always used for this). Each dish holds about 10 stuffed noodles depending on how thick you make them. Cover the noodles with the rest of the sauce and mozzarella cheese, add some parmesan before or after baking. (either way it tastes great!)
5
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
6
Serve and enjoy!
