Serves 8


3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

11/2 pound homemade egg noodles (or sub fresh lasagna sheets cut into ribbons)

2 sticks unsalted butter, in chunks

2 cups sour cream

1 pound cottage cheese

6 large eggs, beaten

12 sprigs fresh chopped parsley


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10x10-inch baking dish.

2. For the mushrooms, saute in three batches in a large pan with one tablespoon butter and one tablespoon olive oil, until brown. Set aside and allow to cool.
