How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Brown the 2 pounds of sausage and 1 pound of beef thoroughly. Drain and set aside.
  • Once you have started browning the meat, start boiling the noodles to the al dente stage.
  • While the meat is browning and the noodles are boiling, wash the bell peppers and remove seeds; chop into roughly 1/2-inch size pieces. Clean the onion and chop into 1/2-inch size pieces. (You don't have to be precise. The measurement is to give you an idea of the size.)
  • Remove meat from pan and drain. Set aside.
  • Put the peppers, onion and mushrooms into the pan and cook until soft but not squishy. Drain and set aside.
  • Pour the noodles into a strainer and drain. Rinse with cool water.
  • In a 6-quart deep-dish casserole dish, spread a small amount of spaghetti sauce. Dry noodles as much as possible before putting a single layer of noodles over the bottom of the casserole dish.
  • Next put in a layer of mozarella, a layer of meat, a layer of parmesan cheese, a layer of veggies (bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms) and a layer of cottage cheese. Repeat layering, ending with a layer of noodles on top.
  • Spread a liberal amount of spaghetti sauce over the top of the noodles.
  • Loosely cover with aluminum foil and cook covered for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from over and remove foil. Sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese over the top, return to oven and bake until cheese is melted and begins to brown slightly.
  • Tip: The longer you let it cool, the more the flavors mingle.
  • Serve with toasted Italian bread and olive oil on the side for dipping. This all goes great with a gentle red wine.
