"I adapted this from a Light & Tasty cookbook. It was so delicious that I had to put it in the fridge before it was cool just to stop myself from eating it all! For WWers, this works to 6 points per serving. I use Ragu No Sugar Added Tomato & Basil sauce to keep the calorie/fat content as low as possible."
Serving Size: 1 (333 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 10
"This seems like a great recipe, but I'm not sure I would label it "Weight Watchers Friendly". According to the nutritional information provided, this would be 12.6 "regular" points (not PointsPlus). And 21.4 g of fat per serving (33% of your daily value!) is pretty high. I'm sure this would be great if you weren't trying to watch your waistline!"
"I went into this recipe knowing I was going to have a lot and I'm happy about that as I can freeze half and use the other for dinner. Very simple to prepare. Only change I made was to sub in ricotta cheese in place of the cottage cheese as a personal preference. Loved the lightness of this dish compared to a lasagna for a nice change of pace. Made for Help a Naked Recipe in the Photo Forum."
"Great recipe. Really a lot of food for the points and reheats very well. Almost better the second day. Will be making on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing!"
"It was so good I felt like I was cheating on my WW. It made a bunch and was great leftover as well. Thanks for sharing!!"
"I made this on Mon and still have a lot left. The kids dont like it but the wife and I LOVE it. Next time thought I will reduce it down to 4 servings. A single serv is quite a lot to go with a salad. It reheats very well indeed."
"Tried this and it was good, however I did the calculations with the nutrition facts shown and it comes to 14 points plus. I wouldn't say that it is weight watchers friendly!"
"Really good comfort food! This tastes like a cross between spaghetti and lasagna. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is a good casserole that you feel good about eating. The kids actually ate it (a feat!) and DH and I thought it had good flavor. It makes a ton, so we'll either freeze half for another meal later or half the recipe next time."
"Excellent - tasty, healthy and easy. I'm not a big fan of spaghetti because I usually end of wearing it - next time I would like to try a different type of noodles instead."
"This was not a huge hit at our house. The kids mostly ate it, but adults were not crazy about it. Sorry. It makes a lot, too."
"I thought this recipe was absolutely delish and I can't believe it doesn't have an insane amount of calories in it! My DH was hoping that it would be more "baked" or "solid", but that didn't bother me at all. The flavor was awesome! Will definitely make this again!"
"Yum! Hubby made this tonight for dinner, and it was awesome! I was shocked that he made it by himself, and amazed by how great it tasted. Thanks for sharing!"
"AWESOME!!! Loved it! Will be making over and over again!!!! Thanks!"
"Made as written, very tasty and satisfying! I do believe it would easily serve more than 10. Four of us ate it, and I froze 2/3 afterwards. This makes it not only low in fat, but cheap! Thanks for posting, mandalee."
"I made this a few weeks ago. It was just delicious!! There was too much for my family of 4, so we froze 1/2 the recipe after cooking it. It thawed and reheated beautifully, to make another yummy meal. I served it with a salad. Thanks for such a yummy recipe!"
"Hi! I combined this recipe with my usual spaghetti pie recipe and this is what I came up with. I cooked the whole wheat spaghetti and combined it with 2 cups of cottage cheese, 1 cup of part skim mozzarella and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. I spread that in the bottom of my greased 9x13 pan. Then I poured the heated spaghetti sauce (I used Prego heart smart) over the noodle mixture and baked it covered for 30 minutes. I uncovered it put about a 1/2 cup of mozzarella on top and baked it for 10 minutes more. It turned out very yummy, we didn't even miss the ground beef and at 8 servings (which is a very large serving) it is only 6 points. Thinks so much for posting and getting my brain thinking of a way to make a family favorite, weight watchers friendly. Thanks again"
