This is a very yummy pasta dish with three kinds of cheese and a homemade tomato sauce. My family loves it.
I made a lot of changes, but only to lower the calories and add more veggies. For the sauce, I chopped 1 onion, 3 tomatoes, and 1 green pepper in the food processor. I combined with 15 oz canned mushrooms and 8 oz tomato sauce. I then added pasta seasoning (basil, oregano, etc.), but did not cook. I used bowtie pasta and layered: 1/2 pasta, 1/2 sauce, cottage cheese, 1/2 pasta, 1/2 sauce, mozzarella cheese. This made 8 large servings at only 250 calories each. - 15 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was very good! I made it exactly as written and we loved it. You could definitely add other vegetables to the sauce and change it up any way you prefer. I always make recipes as they are printed before adding my own touches though and this one is definitely 5 stars as written! - 22 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Tasty basic recipe--kind of dish that both adults and kids would like. I followed recipe exactly except that I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese (I'm sure either is fine), and I added two cloves of crushed garlic to the sauce. Some of the pasta on the top got a bit hard and crusty--perhaps putting foil loosely on top would prevent this? - 25 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
