This was great, according to my big family :) My daughter wanted me to rate it an 82! I used about 3/4 of a pound of spaghetti plus a little extra sauce and meat. Since we do not like cottage cheese, I used ricotta. I also added salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to spaghetti mixture and salt and pepper to meat sauce. When the family heard the name of this recipe, they were leary, but they went nuts over it! Served with a crusty loaf of Italian bread and butter. Thanks for the unique recipe.

I don't know why, but this recipe really surprised me. I was skeptical that the "string" crust would stay together even with the parm. and cheese. It did! And cut beautifully! I did sub. the cottage cheese for ricotta and added bit of italian seasoning to the sauce (I always do). It also surprised me because the end result tasted **soooo much better** than it's individual parts. It was even good cold! A "quiet" little recipe that really shines!
