  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine the tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, minced onion, salt, pepper and oregano in a saucepan. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta shells and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and rinse with cool water.
  4. Put a layer of cooked shells in a greased 3 quart casserole dish. After the shells, you put in the cottage cheese and spread it out to cover all the shells. Layer on the sauce, then another layer of shells, then the mozzarella cheese and more sauce. Add the last layer of shells, the parmesan, and finish with a layer of sauce.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.

This recipe has become a family staple. However, I don't make anything Italian without adding garlic and basil. So, to start the sauce, I like to saute the onion along with a clove of garlic, to...

This was very good! I also used ricotta cheese because I didn't have cottage cheese. Mine also got a little crusty on the top, so next time I will cover with foil.

What's not to love about this dish? I must admit that I made one major substitution by halving the recipe and using a jar of Trader Joe's Traditional Marinara Sauce (sorry about that to all tho...

The only thing I changed was using minced onion instead of fresh and I added garlic. It was great

Everyone loved it. I used romano and cheddar in place of cottage.
