This was delicious! This was easy to prepare and is a very economical, family pleasing meal. I accidently used a larger size can of diced tomatoes (I had already added a 15 oz. can before realizing my error) and I would repeat the error as it came out just great. I also used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, as that is what I had on hand. I think it would be equally delicious with either type of cheese. We were able to get 8 servings even though the recipe indicates 4 servings.

Very yummi, kinda like a lasagne, only different! It was great to freeze in portions for later.

This was last night's dinner, and a great one at that!! I omitted the green peppers (kids and I don't like) and followed the rest of the recipe to a "T"! We all loved it! Even though the cottage cheese was yummy, might try ricotta next time just out of curiousity!! Thank you, Danielle! :-)
