Cook the macaroni in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, about 10 minutes.
Coat a 1-quart casserole dish with no-stick spray.
Add the Cheddar and macaroni.
Toss to combine.
In a blender, puree the cottage cheese, milk, eggs, pepper sauce and 1 teaspoon mustard.
Pour over the macaroni and stir lightly to distribute.
In a cup, mix the remaining 1 teaspoon mustard.
Sprinkle over the casserole.
Bake at 375° for 25 minutes.
