Cooking with the Bad Guys: Noodles Romanov


The second offering from Cooking with the Bad Guys is inspired by Rasputin.  So there's that.

This dinner was pretty good -- the best part about it, though, is that it makes really good leftovers, and that was lunch for me for three days afterward!

There's not too much else I can really say about it, so without further ado...

Noodles Romanov
Serves 6


Ingredients




1 medium onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. butter 
3 Tbsp. flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 tsp. lemon juice
Pepper to taste
1 cup powdered milk
1 1/2 cup water
1 lb. dry egg noodles
1/4 cup parsley

Cook noodles according to package directions. (Or, if you're me and bought them from the bulk section of the grocery store, just boil them until they're done.)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Saute chopped onions in butter until tender.  Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth.  Combine powdered milk with water, then add to the sauce.  Add the mustard.

Cook, stirring, until thickened.  Stir in lemon juice and cheeses.  Stir in the cooked noodles.

Pour into greased casserole dish and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
