    Really tasty! It's a keeper. The whole family enjoy it. I used linguini noodles, spicy Italian sausage (our preference) and smashed the cottage cheese to make it creamier. Next time I may run it thru the food processor to make smoother. I'm always worried about the kids dissecting out 'things' they can identify. Thanks for posting an easy & great alternative to lasagna.

    We love this recipe, although I have changed a few things. I make it in a 13x9, so I use a bit more spaghetti and more cottage cheese and an extra egg to the noodles and the cottage cheese, but very excellent recipee!

    A pie that has got a hold on me; the same way my cell phone thinks it owns ME. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

    What a wonderful recipe! We absolutely loved it! It was very easy to adjust to Weight Watchers as well. I left out the parmesan to reduce the calories, used canned chopped tomatoes in place of spaghetti sauce and only used a light sprinkling of reduced-fat cheese. I loved the flavour of the italian sausage so will stick to that next time, rather than ground beef. Using very low fat sausage, this recipe had a total of 19 Weight Watchers points. I also found that it made more than 1 9-inch pie pan's worth so I also filled a small pyrex dish- tomorrow's leftovers will be so yummy! Thanks for a recipe I'll be making often!
