Polish Noodles (Cottage Cheese and Noodles) Recipe

"This simple recipe came from the Polish side of my family. We simply called it ‘cottage cheese and noodles’ or ‘lazy man pierogies.’ It’s a great comfort food and can be made with any kind of noodle. It could be a side dish, but we always enjoyed it as a meal."
