I have made this twice. I used whole wheat noodles both times as well as fat free cottage cheese and 2% sharp cheddar cheese. I nearly doubled the cheddar cheese the second time because we like it a bit cheesier. This fills a 9 x 13 pan to the brim and allows for plenty of leftovers! Thanks for a great recipe!

This is great! The recipe was very easy to cut in half, and it still made enough to fill a 13 x 9 baking pan. I only needed to bake it for 30 minutes. I used fat free cottage cheese and was very happy with the results. It's a great meatless main dish or side dish. Thanx QUC and Philocrates, for a great new recipe!
