    Lisa1's Note:

    Mom worked and had a house full of picky eaters, so most of what she cooked was low fuss and no frills. You can add fennel seed or red pepper flakes to the sauce if you like.

      my BF can't stand ricotta or cottage cheese, so this recipe was PERFECT for us. i used no-boil noodles and baked it for an hour - so easy and so delicious!

      We loved this! I used lean ground turkey and doubled the meat. I also used no boil noodles which I wouldn't suggest for this. I cooked it for an hour,covered like the box said and they still weren't finished cooking all the way. I would use regular noodles next time. Even with the noodles not being all the way done my family was still oohing and ahhing. That's gotta say something! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!! Made for My 3 Chefs '08.
