Here’s the lowdown
Get a pot of water boiling and prepare 1/2 # angel hair pasta according to package direction.
While that’s going:
1 # ground beef, browned & drained, return to pan
1/2 green pepper & 1/2 onion, finely diced added the beef & sautéed up
Add one jar of your favorite pasta sauce (or homemade if you like)
In a large bowl, combine 1 carton cottage cheese, 2 eggs & one cup parmesan cheese (& a couple shakes of garlic salt too)
Now your noodles are done…drain them and place in a 9x13 pan
Pour 2 T melted butter over the noodles
Cover with the cottage cheese mixture
Cover with meat sauce
Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 45 minutes
Add a layer of shredded cheese (mozzarella - I used colby jack because it’s what I had on hand) for an additional 5 to 7 minutes until melted and ooey gooey good!
p.s. leftovers are yummy too!
