I bought the cookbook that this recipe was in because of this recipe. It is a cross between spaghetti and lasagna and you don't have the mountain of left overs, like with lasagna. It's fast and easy and wonderful with garlic bread and a salad.

This was a great, tasty, easy recipe that resembles lasagna without all the fuss. The spaghetti layered on the bottom (mixed with cheese/eggs/butter) makes for a interesting layer (my husbands words) topped with cottage cheese and the meat mixture. I didn't think that 1 ounce of shredded mozzarella was enough to top of this casserole so I used around 1 1/2 cups. I used Ragu Sundried Tomato & Basil as my sauce, and since the jar was 1 lb 10 ounces I used the entire jar (recipe calls for 15 1/2 ounces). I'm guessing that you could probably make the recipe the night before and throw it in the oven (starting with a cold oven of course) when you got home from work the next evening. This one is a keeper in my house!

This was a very good family pleaser. 2 adults and 4 kids ate nearly the whole pan, unheard of around here. I really have to add my 2 cents here about the amount of cheese. I used probably 1 1/2 c. cottage cheese and showed great restraint to only use about 12 oz. of mozzarella. If I had used 1 oz. there would have been an uprising. This was a nice way to shake up the same old ingredients and make something a little different.
