Comfort Food After a Busy Day

Fourth Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. is Library Board Meeting time.  I'm usually not home until 7 p.m. so it's up to Andrew to come up with something for dinner--something that can be kept on hold or prepared quickly if the meeting goes late.

He first made this dish for our family years ago.  Back when he didn't cook but occasionally longed for his mother's comfort food.  When he first mentioned doing it, I thought it sounded strange.  We all came to like it a lot.

Quite simply, here is Andrew's mother's recipe for the comfort dish of

Noodles With Bacon and Cottage Cheese

Plain or whole wheat noodles, prepared according to package directions and drained
Bacon, crisp and well drained
Creamy cottage cheese--fat content as desired
Parsley, chopped

While the noodles are still warm, toss with just enough olive oil to lightly coat.
Break up the bacon.
Place the noodles on a plate, top with the cottage cheese and sprinkle with the bacon and parsley.
Serve at room temperature.
