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! :-)

This was so good! Instead of the diced tomatoes and tomato paste, I just used a jarred spaghetti sauce. I kept all the other ingredients and it came out great! Wonderful reheated the next day or even several days later. A keeper for sure!

While visiting a friend in Connecticut she made a spaghetti pie and I’ve been trying to reproduce ever since… and this is it! I had left over spaghetti so it was a snap to make. I used ground turkey, 1 ½ cups of cabernet marinara sauce (in place of diced tomatoes, tomato paste and sugar) and omitted the green peeper, other than that if followed the recipe. Oh, I made it in a glass 9� pie pan. This recipe was sooo yummy and even better reheated the next day. Thank you for posting!

I made this using leftover spaghetti; I had leftover meatballs, so I sliced them up and put them over the cottage cheese, then spooned leftover sauce over the whole thing. I also used a little more cheese on the top. Even my ultra-picky 7 year old liked it--minus the meatballs, of course! A terrific recipe to improvise with, I think!

I read this recipe carefully, then read the nutritional information. I'm sorry, but in this day and age, this is ridiculous. 686.8 calories per serving? 34 g total fat with 13.3 g sat fat? Absolutely no way will I ever make this, not for my worst enemy.

This is super easy and quick for a weeknight. Tastes great and offers leftovers for a day or even two depending on size of family. I used ground turkey, omitted peppers and added a splash of red wine and some salt to the sauce. I would prefer a little more noodles for the bottom. Will put this recipe on our regular rotation. Thanks!

Good! A nice weeknight meal. I used a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes, no other changes. Would put servings at 8. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I used ricotta cheese, but did everything else the same. I think we would have liked it better with sausage instead of ground beef.
