I got this recipe from an old Southern Living cookbook. My family enjoys this casserole. I used Ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, since my kids hated cottage cheese.

Very good. I doubled the tomato sauce and reduced the cottage cheese/sour cream by half.

My mom used this exact recipe when I was young. Thinking back, it seems like we had it about once a week. Great as leftovers, too!
