Layered Lasagna-Type Skillet Casserole TNT

I don't usually make things like this or post such recipes, but this turned out better than I expected. It's sort of a stove-top lasagna, based on an old recipe from Sunset Magazine that DW dug out of our extensive collection of clippings. I suspect it's from the 1970s. Very easy, something kids would like. Printable copy attached.

Layered Skillet Casserole

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1 16-ounce jar favorite spaghetti sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (more if desired)
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper
1 cups water
1 pint cottage cheese
6 ounces medium noodles
pound shredded mozzarella cheese

1. In a large skillet or pan, saute beef and onion in olive oil until beef is browned and onions are soft.

2. Stir together the spaghetti sauce, garlic, spices, salt, pepper, and water.

3. Spoon half the sauce over the beef and onion mixture in the pan in which the beef was cooked.

4. Cover sauce and meat with the cottage cheese in a single layer.

5. Top cottage cheese with uncooked noodles.

6. Cover noodles with remaining sauce.

7. Cover pan and bring to boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, until noodles are tender.

8. Remove from heat; add mozzarella cheese in a single layer, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes to allow cheese to melt.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Scotch - Even if it's from the 70's, it still sounds pretty good. I don't know if I'll try it soon, but it sounds good, and if it's a stove top lasagna type dish, it certainly will be on my summer list of what to try.


If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.
