Very good and easy! I had planned to use ricotta cheese but found I didn t have ricotta or cottage cheese. Since I did have a tub of soft cream cheese I used that - very good & rich. I added a 8 oz box of sliced mushrooms. I had a 14 oz can of tomato sauce with mushrooms but added the whole can instead of saving half so in the final step I added a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes after draining off some of the liquid. My husband took a bite and said that it was Very Good even before I had a chance to ask if he liked it!! Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This casserole was quite easy to make and reminds me of an easier version of lasagna. Next time I will leave out the cinnamon as it seemed to distract from the flavor instead of adding to it. Read More

Very little flavor. My husband was not impressed. We threw out the leftovers. Read More

Not one of the best recipes that I have tried. It was good I thought but my family really did not appreciate it as well as other recipes that I have tried. Read More

This was very good although I deleted the mushrooms and would add another can of tomato sauce to the beef mixture next time. I'll be making this again--my daughter who doesn't like beef gobbled it up! Read More

Really good! It was just like lasagna without all of the fuss. Uses ingredients we usually have on hand. Will definately make again. Read More

I must say I was unsure of this recipe when I read it but Hey Mikey I really like it. I probably used a bit more cinnamon than was called for & it gives it a very interesting flavor. This is comfort food at its best. Thank you for sharing. Read More

I really botched up the directions; adding all the tomato sauce at once and stirring in the cottage cheese instead of putting on top. Guess what? It was still edible! Just some hardened noodles on top. I added cilantro and red pepper to this recipe. Read More
