1 pound ground beef
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chopped onion
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cottage cheese, small or large curd
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh chives, or use 4 tablespoons freeze-dried
1 package (8 ounces) wide or hearty noodles, cooked according to package directions for al dente and drained
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the beef. Drain off the excess grease. Add the tomato sauce, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the cottage cheese, sour cream and chives in a large bowl. Gently fold in the cooked noodles. Season with more salt and pepper as desired. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with oil or cooking spray. Layer half of the noodle mixture in the bottom. Top with a layer of the meat mixture. Top with half of the cheddar cheese. Repeat the layers with the remaining noodles and beef. Cover tightly with greased or sprayed foil. Bake until hot and bubbly, about 35 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Return to oven, uncovered, and bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Let rest about 5 minutes before serving.
