"This was very good and so easy to put together. I added some basil and red pepper flakes to the meat mixture and only 1 tsp of splenda because we don't like it too sweet. As other did I also used extra cheeses. I'll make this one again. Thanks for sharing. Made for WTTM Tag Game :)"
"This humble spaghetti pie has made it into my Best of 2010 list, it was wonderful! How can a home-made fast food style meal taste so naughty! It tasted like a fat laden pizza or lasgane, and yet it was lower in fat and made with GREAT ingredients. I used low fat cottage cheese and olive oil in place of margarine, I also dry fried my lean 95% meat beef and low fat sausages, then drained the scant amount of fat off. The spaghetti crust held and made a great pie crust and the taste was sublime, a REAL home-cooked and hearty meal, a keeper for us! I will be making this for a pot luck meal next week, but bigger, will let you know how the larger version turns out. Made for Recipe Swap #41, Magic of herbs, in the Photo's Forum - I used FRESH oregano leaves and also Under Cover - Pies and Tarts in the Photo's Forum. 10 star, merci! FT:-)"
"Yahoooo. great dish. I made this for an RV rally (one neighbor came back for thirds!!!) rave reviews and NO leftovers. I added a few leftover whole tomatoes ( my sauce was a bit dry) and of coase added more cheese (just the way I am) Made for Star tag and so glad I did.. added to my favorites ASAP."
"Oh yum!! This was really delicious. I made it a day ahead of time,so when I came in from work I could just throw it into the oven.It worked a treat,and within 40 mins we were all sat down down and tucking in. I used hot Italian sausage,and my favourite homemade tomato sauce which gave a nice little zip to it. An easily prepared,thoroughly satisfying and tasty meal,that even my two year old devoured with gusto! Thanks for sharing.Made for Gimme Five."
"Very good recipe and also freezes well. I made the recipe as written except for stirring in a little ricotta with the cottage cheese (no harm in more cheese, right?) Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders."
"Great week-night meal with great taste. I did use ricotta cheese in place of cottage cheese and because I was out of mozzarella, I used shredded sharp cheddar. I wasn't sure what seasoned pepper was, so I just used regular ground pepper.

"Assembled earlier in day which is always a thumbs up in our house. I used Italian seasoned ground turkey for meat and wished I had omitted the salt-didn't dawn on me at time that the meat already had salt in it. I did not add any sugar. Think I would use a shorter strand of pasta next time so it's easier scooping up although the long pasta has more eye appeal. Thanks weekender for sharing a very nice recipe."
"This made a great lunch for my DD and I today. I added extra mozzarella over the cottage cheese layer. We both had seconds. Made for PRMR."
"Very easy to put together and very kid friendly. I increased everything just a bit because I knew that it would be eaten up quickly by a group of teenage boys. Everyone loved it. Made for Zaar stars. Thanks for sharing!"
"Made it for my family last night and everyone was raving about it! I double the recipe and it was perfect for a big crowd!"
"We just loved this for dinner last night and was easier to make than lasagna!! I did do a few changes, in that, I used all ground beef and added 1/2 a small can of tomato paste to the mixture to make a thicker sauce. I only used 1 tsp sugar, just to cut the acidity and just eyeballed all the rest of spices for our taste. When assembling I used about 1 1/2 cup cottage cheese and at least double the mozzarella cheese and then sprinkled some parmesan cheese over that, as we love it cheesy!! I served it with garlic bread and green beans for a true comfort meal!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe, that I will definitely be making again!! Made for Stars Tag!!"
"Sometimes too little thought is given to a homecooked meal. The bonding, sharing and, of course, a delicious dish has a way of healing in hard times. I made a couple of changes...instead of cottage cheese, I mixed cream cheese with parsley and for the cheese topping, I used up some odd and ends. Made for 123 Hit Wonders."
"Great eat-some-now-and-stash-additional-serves-in-the-freezer recipe! I doubled the recipe and made a few ingredient changes (personal taste preferences): I used unsalted butter rather than margarine, low-fat cottage cheese, garlic rather than garlic powder, MarraMamba's Recipe #273976 rather than canned tomato sauce. I also used only half the sugar (i.e. one tablespoon for the double quantity). I used half lean beef mince and half a veal/pork mince as I never use sausage meat. I also added some rosemary, thyme and sage to the oregano. The instructions were very easy to follow, and the dish very tasty. We loved the flavoursome spaghetti crust. :) Thank you for sharing this recipe, weekend cooker; it's one I'll happily make again. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders."
"These were very good. Doubled the recipe to fit a huge casserole dish to last us for a few days. So filling with the pepper coming out a bit strong for our taste. I'll just lessen that next time. Thanks!"
