READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Cook the onion in oil, in a frying pan, on low heat for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Set aside.
  • Add the ground beef to the pan, and cook, breaking it up often until the meat is no longer pink. Add the cooked onions back to the pan with the celery, bay leaf and dried herbs, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and pepper flakes, and beef stock. Cover and simmer gently for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened.
  • Meanwhile, Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling water until al dente. Drain and add salt to taste.
  • When the meat is cooked, remove the bay leaf and stir in the parsley. Mix the pasta with the meat then turn into a baking dish.
  • Beat the eggs with the cottage cheese (or yogurt or crème fraiche) and grated cheese. Pour over the meat/pasta mixture.
  • Bake at 375F for about 30 minutes until the top has browned and the sauce is bubbly.
