    This dish is in my oven as we speak. I used 2 cups of macaroni instead of 1, and I substitued cottage cheese for a light ricotta. It smells delicious and I'm really excited to eat this. Thanks for posting!

    Hi Reesey!

    This sounds so good! Question, do you use store bought bread crumbs or just crumble some bread at home?

    Thanks!
