  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 2 /12-quart casserole with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook shell macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Add water, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and seasoning mix. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain and rinse macaroni. Spread 1/2 of the macaroni into the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Top with cottage cheese, then the beef mixture. Repeat layers of macaroni, cottage cheese, and meat. Cover with Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve hot.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe is very basic, so you could easily add some extra ingredients like chopped onion, green pepper, and maybe even some mushrooms.

Cheated and used canned Sloppy Joe sauce with extra onion and bell pepper added. Came out pretty good, except next time I'll use 1.5 pounds of meat. I used a 9X9 square baking dish and there was...

This was a very easy dish to make and very yummy! My husband especially loved it and took all the leftovers for lunch the next day. I think next time I will add 2 ounces more pasta as I felt it ...

Very easy to make. Very tasty. I didn't give 5 stars because it didn't have ENOUGH of a Sloppy Joe flavor. (Could be the store brand seasoning I used.) I would make it again.
