I love the version of this recipe that I used to make years ago. Unfortunately, I have lost it, so I am now here looking for it. The ingredients I remember using are much the same as those listed by J.D. It did use tomato sauce rather than paste. I do not recall using Worcestershire sauce, I think I did use garlic powder. But the most significant difference is the addition of fresh bell pepper and fresh green onion, chopped, that is added to the cheese mixture. Because they are added raw they don't become over-cooked while baking. They give a lovely bright green contrast to the white cheese and red sauce, plus add a lot of flavor and crunch.Oh, and there was no butter in the recipe I used. My main project now is getting all the amounts correct!
I agree this recipe is extremely bland and for crying out loud the amount of butter used in this recipe is "scary". The blandness was prevelant even after adding extra worchestire sauce and adding more hot sauce I used margarine instead of butter and I used light cream cheese light sour cream and lowfat cottage cheese. Possibly ricotta would be better and tomato paste with roasted garlic. I think I will try again and work it up a bit
I made this tonight with a few changes due to the reviews and it came out great! First I used a jar of sauce. Then I changed the cottage cheese to part skim ricotta. After I put the noodles and meat in, I put chopped fresh mushrooms and broccoli...then the cheese mix. I tossed the top noodles with a little bit of sauce and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese. Everyone loved it and had seconds too.
This recipe is very bland, and certainly not worth the extreme fat content.
OMG, SOOOOOO good! We loved it. I had leftover spaghetti sauce, so I jsut used that instead of the meat mixture this recipe called for. I made the yummy cheese filling, and added about 1 cup of grated motzza and about 1/2 cup of grated cheddar. I then sprinkled about 1 cup of cheddar on top of the casserole as well after it was all assembled. So good! Very quick too. It's deffinetly one of thoes Stick To Your Ribs kidna meals, good for a cold night. The leftovers are great too.
My family loves this recipe. I don't change a thing and they gobble it right up!
I love this. I add lots of hot sauce to the ground beef mix and put onions in it instead of the cheese mix.
Only problem was that it was too dry. I suggest baking it covered, and/or adding some tomato or spaghetti sauce
