    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You will need a minimum 2-quart round casserole dish for this or this will also fit into an 11 x 7-inch baking pan this will *not* fit into a regular 9 or 10-inch pie plate --- with this or with any recipe made from scratch preparation time takes a little extra effort, to save some time and to blend the flavors prepare the tomato sauce mixture up to a day in advance and refrigerate until ready to use --- substituting prepared pasta sauce for the tomato sauce will not produce the best results I would strongly recommend using only tomato sauce, this recipe was tested both ways and the tomato sauce version was the best! --- NOTE this also may be made without the cottage cheese filling by placing the sauce directly over the spaghetti top with mozzarella cheese and reducing the baking time only slightly

      Great Recipe Kittencal always delivers!! The tomato sauce tastes really great and the simmering time is well worth it. The only change I made was to add fresh herbs at the end. I also omitted the mushrooms my husband has an aversion to them.
      Thank You

      Another fantastic recipe from Kittencal! I couldn't find the cream-style cottage cheese at my grocer so used Ricotta cheese instead. It was great...even the leftovers got eaten!
