Made this tonight for me and my DH. We both really enjoyed it! I had to use all ground beef and macaroni noodles instead, but it turned out great. (Oh, I sprinkled some shredded mozzarella over the top; just personal preference.)Such an easy recipe, and much less expensive than a pan of lasagna, with the same taste. Thanks! Will definitely become a regular.

I found there to be too much liquid in this recipe. I might try it again, either increasing the mafalda (mini lasagna noodles) by a cup, decreasing the water by a 1/2 cup or using regular lasagna noodles broken up. Sorry to be a downer. Thanks for the recipe though!

We loved this. It was so simple and really good. I used a store-bought pasta sauce and liked that it used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. My DGS grabbed cottage cheese at the store instead of sour cream. lol. I have to admit that some containers look pretty much the same. lol. But we really enjoyed this simple dish. Thanks for sharing. Made for Name That Ingredient tag.
