"I wanted lasagna and didn't have alot of the ingredients that most recipes call for. So, I decided to make up one using what I had on hand. And if I say so myself it turned out pretty good ;). Now this is a very mild dish, so I think it would be very kid friendly. Both the stovetop and oven times have been figured into the cooking time.I know there are ALOT of steps in this but believe me, it's alot easier than it looks. Let " rest " for 10 minutes before serving.Submitted to " ZAZZ " on July 28th."

No special items needed.



Tasted good but think next time I will leave out the peppers and use Ricotta in place of the cottage cheese.

This is very good and worked out well for us! Instead of the Italian seasoning I used oregano and for the seasoned salt I used garlic salt. Easy to put together and enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!

Pretty easy to put together with a good taste. Noodles baked great and were completely done. This is my first time adding eggs to the cottage cheese. Everything turned out great. Made for Culinary Quest 2014 for a fellow teammate.
