 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Elbow macaroni or small
  • -shells


1/2 c Sunflower seeds
1 tb Oil
3 tb Butter
1 sm Chopped onion
1 c Sliced mushrooms
2 1/2 c Grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c Cottage cheese
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/2 ts Paprika
1/2 ts Salt
Black pepper

3 c Dry breadcrumbs
2 tb Butter; melted
1/4 c Chopped green bell peppers
-or fresh parsley

Heat oven to 350F. Toast sunflower seeds in oil in a skillet until golden,
and season with a sprinkle of salt. Boil macaroni for half the required
time. (For small shells about 3 minutes.) Macaroni should still have a
definite chew to it, because it will continue to cook in the oven. Saute
onions until light golden in color and add mushrooms, saute another 4
minutes. Stir all ingredients together well and spoon into a greased baking
dish. Bake for 20 minutes and cover with breadcrumbs. Bake another 10
minutes and garnish with raw green bell pepper or parsley.
