  • 1 lb bacon
  • Rotini or noodle of your choice - the box I used was about 13 oz.
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cheddar cheese grated
  • green onions thinly sliced


  • Chop the bacon and fry in a medium skillet until crispy. Remove from the pan and retain 1-2 tablespoons of bacon fat.
  • Cook the pasta noodles according to the directions on the package. Drain and return to the pot. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Mix in the sour cream, cottage cheese, bacon, and bacon fat, and mix until combined. Add more sour cream or cottage cheese to make as creamy as you want.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top with green onions and cheese and serve. This dish is good both warm and cold.
