Lazanki With Cheese (Poland)

(6 servings)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 cup dry cottage cheese
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 Tablespoons cream
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
Make dough of flour, egg, and water. Knead until firm and roll out on floured board. Cut into one inch strips. Cut strips slant-wise into half inch pieces.

Cook like noodles in salted boiling water. Drain, bathe in cold water and strain. Force cheese through strainer. Add yolks, cream and sugar and beat hard.

In a buttered baking dish arrange a layer of lazanki and a layer of the cheese mixture until used up. Sprinkle with buttered bread crumbs and bake in 350 degree oven for half hour.

Lazanki (pronounced "wa-ZAN-kee") is a homemade pasta square. Lots of work, but worth it!
