Quick and easy casserole

Joyce Anderson


  • Sauce:
  • 4 small cans tomato sauce
  • 4 small cans tomato paste
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). ground beef
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). ground Italian sausage
  • 1 large can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can water (I use half water - half wine)
  • 2 tsp (10 ml). basil
  • 4 Tbsp (60 ml). parsley
  • 3 tsp (15 ml). garlic salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). pepper
  • Casserole Ingredients:
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). mozzerella cheese - diced
  • 1 cup (225 ml) grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups (475 ml) cottage cheese
  • 1 pkg. large shell pasta
  • Prepare sauce:
  • Brown meats; drain.
  • Add tomato sauce, paste, water, and spices.
  • Simmer 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Cook noodles until tender; drain.
  • Pour noodles into a large casserole dish.
  • Stir in cottage cheese, mozzerella, and cheddar cheese.
  • Ladle sauce over mixture - blend in until you get a good mixture that isn't dry.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
The sauce recipe will be more than you need. This casserole freezes well so you can make extra and freeze for another meal.

Any type of sauce (scratch or bottled) can be substituted.

Great for large crowd - and for potlucks. A real crowd pleaser!
