Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 20 mins


  • olive oil for pan
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 t sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 pound cottage cheese
  • 1/2 pound egg noodles cooked (I use whole wheat)


  • Heat oil in a saute pan. Add onion, saute until softened. Add paprika, stir to coat onion and heat the spice. Add cabbage, stir again. Add about half a cup of water, stir again, so the paprika coats the cabbage. Cover, and simmer 8-10 minutes, until done to your taste.
  • Add cottage cheese, and stir just until it is all mixed together and the cheese is warmed up.
  • Serve over cooked egg noodles


Amounts are flexible. This is what I cooked that day - I generally use 6-8 oz of cottage cheese per person, depending on how hungry we are and what else is in the meal, and a cup or more of shredded cabbage.
