This was pretty tasty ... tasted more like lasagna then pizza but still tasted good. I used brown rice and longhorn cheese but other then that followed the recipe. It was good the second day for lunch as well. Thanks

This was really good and my whole family really liked it. I already had a spaghetti sauce made, with veggie crumbles instead of meat. And I used brown rice instead of white. But it was really tasty and a nice change from another baked pasta dish.

You'll laugh when I tell you how I adapted this recipe to what I had on hand..... Instead of cottage cheese, I used mashed great northern beans. I also used wild rice, and omitted the garlic powder. I had fresh herbs in my garden; tarragon, Greek oregano, and basil and used those. I also added a bit of mexican cheeses (chipotle included) and made this more of a mexican casserole! It turned out great! We ate it over baked potatoes on day two! Nothing like TONS OF CARBS at my house!
