Three Layer Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Whisper

This is a nice casserole to take to a pot luck dinner. It's easy and inexpensive to make. I prefer to use fresh spinach. It can be made ahead and frozen for those nights you don't want to fuss after working all day. Serve with bread and you have your entire meal. Prep time includes time to saute meat and onion.

I used low fat turkey italian sausage and 1% cottage cheese for this which reduced the calories but not the taste. This was very good and we will be making this again. My DH needs to gain weight so we put his on top of noodles. I found that it was a little runny however after cooling it set up very nice much like lasagna.
