This is a quick and easy dish resembling Lasagna for those who don't want to make the time consuming real thing. Everyone loves it in my house and the leftovers are better the next day.

- Meanwhile cook noodles according to package directions.
- When noodles are done, drain and add to sauce mixture and mix well.
- Pour half of the sauce and noodle mixture into a 12x9 glass baking dish.
- Add cottage cheese and spread across mixture.

This recipe couldn't be any more simple. I was running short on pasta so was glad to find this variation using egg noodles. I substituted "Smart Ground" - imitation ground beef. It worked very well. Also used Mexican blend instead of the cheddar. I increased the cottage cheese a little bit too, so it covered the bottom layer. I will definitely keep this recipe around the next time I need a yummy, quick meal!
