Mock Lasagna Casserole

Mock Lasagna Casserole

This is another Better Homes and Gardens recipe from the book "Good Food On a Budget" that was published in 1971.  I didn't make it often but, when I did, Lorien loved it and that is what I wrote in my cookbook.  She probably doesn't remember that but it's a little piece of the family food history.

1     pound bulk pork sausage  (It's quite possible that I sometimes used ground beef)
1     15-ounce can tomato sauce (2 cups)
½    water
½    teaspoon each garlic salt, pepper, and dried basil leaves, crushed
1     7-ounce package macaroni (or other small pasta), cooked and drained
1½  cups cream-style cottage cheese
6     ounces process American cheese, shredded (1½ cups)

Brown the meat; drain off fat.  Add tomato sauce, garlic salt, pepper, basil, and  ½  cup water.  Cover; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  In a 2-quart casserole layer half each macaroni, cottage cheese, and meat sauce.  Repeat.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serves 6 to 8.
