  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup water


Cook meat until brown. Sprinkle 1/2 package of dry spaghetti sauce mix over meat. Spoon cottage cheese over spaghetti sauce mix, seasonings and salt. Pour tomatoes and spaghetti sauce over mix. Add water and bring to a boil, cover mixture and simmer for 35 minutes or until noodles are done. Add mozzarella on top, cover and simmer 5 minutes.


Makes a large meal. I have tweaked the recipe over the years to add or subtract ingredients to our liking. Very easy to prepare and cook. I use a very large electric skillet. Slice up the leftovers and refrigerate them for a quick snack or meal.
