“Lokshyna” are Ukrainian noodles, and today we’ve dressed them up with plenty of sizzling bacon, creamy cottage cheese, and a couple of cracked eggs to bind the casserole together. The finishing touch is a happy sprinkling of buttered breadcrumbs (as few or as many as you’d like). One note on authenticity: traditional versions of this recipe are made with fresh egg noodles.

Instructions
  1. Cook the noodles until al dente. Run cool water over them to stop the cooking and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350F.In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, half and half, eggs, and seasoning. Plenty of pepper gives the pasta bite.
  2. Stir the cooked pasta. Set aside. Cook the bacon, then chop when cool enough to handle. Add the chopped bacon and any accumulated bacon fat into the pasta mixture. Pour into a buttered or oiled 3 quart casserole.
  3. Next, melt the butter and stir it together with some breadcrumbs until the mixture resembles wet sand. Sprinkle on top of the casserole and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and bubbling. Enjoy!
