Shells and Cottage Cheese Recipe

Nothing is better than some onions fried in butter, the mixed with pasta and cottage cheese. Who needs mac and cheese from a box when you can make this dish in minutes.

Mom used at least 2 sticks of butter here, I have cut it down to one. Go ahead, if you feel it needs more and add more. I won’t tell.

Comfort food is where it’s at and this meal gives you plenty. It’s quick and easy to make. Make extra so you can reheat it and enjoy a quick snack.
