This was great. I served it with spaghetti and a salad. Made for Make My Recipe and New Kids on the Block.

This was very good and incredibly easy. I used ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese as I prefer it. I didn't understand the 4 cups of water but did when we ate it. You must add the water or else the noodles will soak up all the sauce. I will do that next time although even with my mistake, it was very tasty. Super easy clean up, too.
