- In a large skillet cook the ground beef or pork sausage, onion, and sweet pepper until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain well. Stir in the undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, and garlic salt. Heat through.
- Spread cottage cheese over spaghetti mixture in pie plate. Top with the meat mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake about 5 minutes more or until mozzarella cheese melts. Makes 6 servings.

I have been making this since it first showed up in print. I do 1/2 ricotta cheese and use 1/2 hamburger and 1/2 italian sausage. I double the recipe and make them ahead and double wrap in foil and put them in the freezer. Easy dinner for just arrived company! Always a favorite.
