    Make sure you undercook the pasta a little as it cooks more in the oven. But this is really good and really satisfying! - 7/4/07

    I fed this to a crowd at my housewarming party without telling them it was low cal. Everyone loved it. Several went back for seconds. I used wheat pasta and put mozzarella cheese on top instead of parmasean. YUMMY! - 2/10/09

    If you are having any trouble with the cottage cheese giving off lots of liquid toss it with a TBL or two of flour and perhaps beaten egg. - 12/17/10

  • instead of garlic powder-humidity made it clump, I used minced garlic and added fresh basil from my garden instead of parsley. Hubby said I could make it for him at least twice a month. He loved it and I found it fun to make. - 9/15/12

  • This was definitely quick and easy and enjoyable, but a little bland. I made my pasta sauce from scratch to flavor it up a bit, but I think perhaps some garlic, red pepper flakes and add veggies might spice it up! :) - 3/16/11
