Great recipe. Have made it numerous times. I simmer meat mixture for 20 mins. I keep the meat mixture separate from the cottage cheese sour cream etc mixture and layer it in the casserole dish starting with the meat mixture and then cottage cheese sour cream etc mixture.. repeat and then top with cheddar cheese.

I'm happy to find a "hamburger helper"-like recipe that doesn't use condensed cream soup. My kids love HH but I can't eat it because of the MSG. This recipe was great but I made a few changes. Used no butter less salt used garlic powder instead of garlic salt (and more of it) more pepper. Substituted white onion sauteed with the beef for the green onion fewer noodles -- and used whole wheat rotini. We loved it this way. Just what we were looking for! Read More

This was a pretty good recipe. I used real garlic instead of the powder. I also left out the butter and used 1% cottage cheese 1% sour cream and 93% lean burger. It turned out quite tasty. Read More

This was delicious and my 2 year old loved it too. I did what one of the reviews said and cut out the green onions (because my 2 yr. old won't eat them) and substitued about a teaspoon of Onion Salt. I also omitted the regular salt since I used Onion Salt. I will DEFINITELY be making this again!!! Read More

My 12 yr old daughter was bored and wanted to cook and picked this recipe. We used lean ground Sirloin but did not saute in butter. We substituted fresh garlic for the garlic salt and used whole wheat noodles. We couldn't WAIT to eat this for lunch because it smelled so good! I think the green onions and cottage cheese really enhanced the flavor of this dish. Definitely a keeper! Read More
