EASY Lasagna Casserole

1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. cottage cheese
1 lb. mozzarella cheese
1 lb. dried pasta noodles (not lasagna noodles)
1 large jar spaghetti sauce

- Cook pasta to al dente
- Brown ground beef
- Combine all ingredients reserving about 1/3 of mozzarella
- Pour mixture into case role dish
- Top with remaining mozzarella
- Cook at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until bubbly

- For a low-fat version use ground turkey, fat free cottage cheese and low-fat mozzarella (or omit mozzarella)
- If mixture seems crumbly or too dry before you put it in the casserole dish add more spaghetti sauce
- If you want to make this more complicated you can make your spaghetti sauce from scratch
- Any pasta noodles will work except for lasagna noodles

  1. I've been making this since I first got married and we were too poor to afford cheese (and sometimes meat). It even tastes good if you make it with pasta, cottage cheese and spaghetti sauce.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love to see how these recipes work out for you and what modifications you make. Sorry to have to turn on the word verificatoin but this blog has been getting a LOT of spam!
