This is similar to lasagna. It's fairly easy to prepare, and my picky eaters love it! The cheeses are cream cheese and cottage cheese, which enables you to control the fat content without cutting on flavor. Garnish with some grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Well with A LOT of doctoring this recipe turned out great! First I made a much yummier sauce then this recipe called for. I used Sun Dried Tomatoe sauce and garlic tomatoe paste a little brown sugar some hot sauce lots of garlic ect. I didn't mix all the cheeses/sour cream in to the meat mixture because that sounded a little yucky to me. Instead I assembled it like you would lasagna with a layer of the cheese mixture all on it's own. So for that I didn't actually measure the cheeses or sour cream. Just threw what I thought would be good in a bowl and stired it up. I also added half each of a yellow and red pepper and about 1 cup of grated aged cheddar cheese. I then in a greased casserole dish put half the noodles all the cheese mixture half the meat sauce remaining noodles remaining meat suuce and finally topped it all off with some more grated cheddar and a sprinkle of parm. Yumm!!! Loved this at least the way I made it. It's a great idea just play with it to make it the likes of your family. Thanx for this great idea though!:) Read More

Speaking as Dad who picks-up the kids and makes dinner for Mom when she gets home this was an easy meal to make. It even passed the finicky 5 year-old test. You may want to add some spices to give it flavor all that cream cheese cottage cheese and sour cream can be bland for some tastes. Read More

This was very easy but quite bland. I substituted picante sauce for tomato sauce. It needs to be covered in the oven to keep noodles from becoming dry. Needs some spices and maybe some cheese on top. Read More
