About this recipe: This is a Hungarian pasta dish called 'Turos Csusza'. It's very quick to make and deliciously creamy with bits of crispy smoked bacon through it.
I made this as my friends dad is Hungarian and used to cook this for her alot as a child. I tried making it exactly as she does and the instructions are the same here. I make this using tagatelle pasta, it comes out perfect . Thank you. - 15 Jan 2016
I'm sorry for the few stars but even though American folks seem to like this recipe it is not a túrós csusza. That's primarily because cottage cheese does not exist in Hungary. We use "túró" (hence the name) which is a slightly curdier version of what you buy in the US as farmers' cheese. We don't mix the pasta with sour cream, rather the cheese itself, and top it with the sour cream before putting it in the oven. Alternatively, the sour cream is mixed in with the cheese. Trust me, it is the right cheese that really makes this dish. - 21 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is an amazing meal! This recipe is the authentic way of making it, don't change a thing as it doesn't need it. My Hungarian parents always made this and it taste awsome! You could skip the oven part and just warm cottage cheese and sour cream on stove top with the noodles. I made this for my family and my daughter loves it! Yummy. - 18 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
