    First off, the amount of baked spaghetti this yielded is insane! The recipe could probably stand to be halved. I too substituted ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese and omitted the butter and eggs in an attempt to be health-conscious, as well as a homemade meat sauce vs. just the marinara sauce, and it was still just as yummy!

    This was amazing! The only things I added were garlic and breadcrumbs on top. Will be making this again for sure.

    Sooo good!!!! I added a garlic clove to the meat and diced tomatoes. I also put down some heavy whipping cream after I put the first half of noodles in the baking pan. I also did not have ricotta cheese or cottage cheese just lots of Shredded Parmesan Cheese and a bit of Cheddar. Will absolutely do this again!!

    Really tasty . Used 90% lean ground turkey and “mexican mix” cheese as alternatives.

    This was soooo delicious even though I didn’t bake it. I made it on the stove & mixed up the cheese. It would probably be even better baked. I also didn’t use cottage cheese but everything else I did & everyone loved it.😍

    It was great! 2/3 kids liked it and 2/2 adults win! I didn’t have any cottage cheese, so I just used a blend of white cheddar and Swiss cheeses!

    Turned out pretty good. It needed a little more flavor once I tasted the sauce so I added Italian seasoning, pepper, & a little sugar. Kiddos loved it. I may try using ricotta cheese next time instead of cottage cheese just to see the difference. The cottage cheese was a little hard to spread

    This turned out pretty well! I did add some garlic salt to the noodles. I was actually surprised! I didnt think I would like it because of the cottage cheese, but it tastes good and its creamy! My family gobbled it up. Heads up! This recipe makes A LOT. I only made one layer because i didnt have a big enough pan. We had plenty of left over.
