Cook 8-oz. macaroni, according to package instructions. (I added 1 teaspoon salt to the boiling water.) Drain macaroni when done. In the meantime, combine 2 cups cottage cheese, an 8-oz. carton sour cream, 1 well-beaten egg, ½ to ¾ teaspoon salt, a dash of black pepper, and 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese in a large bowl. Add cooked and drained macaroni to cheese sauce and stir mixture until well-combined. Spoon macaroni mixture into a 9-inch by 12-inch by 2-inch baking dish, which has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Bake at 350 for 35 to 45 minutes, or until bubbly and beginning to brown. Serve immediately! Yum! I hope you enjoy this recipe! --Betty
