directions

  1. In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook and crumble first 3 ingredients until no longer pink; about 6-8 minutes. Drain off liquid. Stir in tomatoes, water and Mama Mia Marinara Sauce Mix. Let cool.
  2. In medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, egg and ½ cup Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  3. Place 1 cup sauce in the bottom of a greased freezer to oven-safe 11x7-inch baking dish. Layer with 3-4 noodles, 1 cup sauce, ½ the cottage cheese, ½ cup mozzarella cheese and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers finishing with 3-4 noodles, remaining sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Seal well, label and freeze.
  5. To bake from frozen, preheat oven to 400°F. Remove foil and plastic; loosely replace foil. Bake 1½ hours. Remove foil and continue baking 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant-read food thermometer, is bubbly and cheese is lightly browned. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with garlic toast and a green salad.
