No boiling. No laying out sticky, cooked noodles to cool. And I love the little zing you get from the Italian Sausage. I hope you enjoy this too!

I made this for the family... They loved it! Even my wife had to give me kuddos. I will say that the prep time should show at least an hour. I did swap small curd cottage cheese for ricotta and added a shake or two of oregano to the meat mixture near the end of the frying process. This recipe is a keeper and I've now created a cookbook.
