Double Cheese Casserole

Recipe by  

"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! :)

Easy to make, but definitely needs some spice - I'm going to try it again with alittle cayenne in the beef...

I am mother to the two most picky eaters and they loved this dish!!! I made only minor adjustments. I pre-seasoned the beef with pepper, lowery's seasoning salt, and garlic powder. Then before popping it in the oven I added 2c. mozzarella cheese 1c. stirred in 1c. on top.

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.

Very yummy. My whole family loved it from my four year old to my husband. I did need to add spices, and I added chedder cheese on top.

My kids love it when they see that this is for dinner. My husband and I like a little more flavor in our food. But it's a very accessible dish.

Very easy and cheep. Kinda taste like hambuger helper. I added a can of diced tomatos with onion and garlic. Also put in some green onions.. It made all the difference. Tasty

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.
