Lasagna Toss

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
dash of minced garlic (or garlic salt/powder 1/4 tsp)
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
6 oz spiral noodles
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan

Brown beef w/ onion and garlic and salt. (Add garlic and salt after draining hamburger for more flavor.) Stir in spaghetti sauce. Simmer until heated. Remove 1 cup meat sauce and set aside. Stir noodles into remaining sauce. Place half of noodle mixture in greased 2 qt. casserole dish. Cover with cottage cheese and 1 cup Mozzarella cheese. Add remaining noodle mixture; top with reserved meat sauce and remaining Mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake, covered with tin foil, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Optional - add Parmesan after cooking. (4-6 servings)

Notes: The recipe doesn't specify, but I believe the noodles need to be cooked before they are added. Also, 2 cups of shredded Mozzarella might be a bit too much - start with a cup and go from there. I got this recipe from my sister, Jill.
