Recipe by Tona C.

This is a modified recipe that originated in an old Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. I have made this casserole dozens of times -- it is delicious and worth the extra time it takes to make the sauce from scratch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat slowly; spoon off excess fat. Add next 5 ingredients. Simmer uncovered 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Cook noodles in large amount boiling salted water till tender; drain; rinse.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients, except Provel cheese.
  4. Place half the noodles in a 15x10x2 baking dish; spread with half the cottage-cheese filling; add half the Provel cheese and half the meat sauce. Repeat layers.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting in squares -- filling will set slightly. Makes 18 servings.
  6. Or assemble early; refrigerate. Be sure to allow 15 minutes or so longer in the oven.
