Now this recipe is far from healthy, but it’s unbelievably delicious and it’s a Hungarian traditional meal. I know this meal as long as I remember and this was one of the very first recipes I learned to cook.
The sourness of the sour cream, cottage cheese, and the cheese balances the fatty, salty bacon bits and creates a delicious topping for the noodles or pasta.The Hungarian Cottage Cheese Noodles is a wonderful heartwarming comfort food.

Besides that it’s really mouth-watering, the Hungarian Cottage Cheese Noodles is ready within minutes. Cooking the noodles/pasta takes the longest in this recipe, so if you have leftover noodles/pasta, this meal is ready in about 3-5 minutes (including heating the noodles/pasta).

I have been eating/making this dish. I am of Polish, Czech, Hungarian decent. We called it Noodles and Pot Cheese. Pot Cheese is very difficult to find in the grocery stores these days, so we use large curd cottage cheese. Also, after the noodles are cooked(al dente’), drain them. Place some butter is a pan(saute or frying)and melt on medium heat add diced onion and sauté’ until clear. Add drained noodles and sauté until hot and glistening from the butter, add Cottage cheese and gently sauté until cheese is hot and melted throughout the noodles and onions. Add salt and pepper at any time .
I’ve been eating this my whole life too! I’m half Hungarian. I’m going to totally butcher the spelling, but Grandma called it todish testa. We still do!
Hi Hannah! It’s a great comfort dish, isn’t it? And you almost got the spelling right! It’s túrós (like: too-raw-sh) tészta 🙂
Do you use dry cottage cheese or creamed cottage cheese ?
Hi Emily! I use the dry one, but creamed would work just as well! Maybe you need less sour cream with the creamed cottage cheese!
