This was easy and pretty good.I used the basic recipe but like someone else suggested I used Manwich because that is what we like for sloppy joes. I added onion and red,yellow,and green peppers.I'm sure I will make this again.Easy and tastey.

I made this tonight. I cut the recipe in half. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese (I use these interchangeably). I also had to make my own "sloppy Joe" pack. I generally make Rachel Rays Super Sloppy Joes. So I don't keep prepackaged mixes on hand. That's said food.com has a good recipe to sub out the packet if you don't have one in the house. My husband said it reminded him of a meal his nanny used to make growing up. So I think it is a winner.

This recipe was great. The only thing I changed was the cheese. I added more than the recipe called for. My kiddos really enjoyed this!

I made this tonight. I shortened it a bit by getting a can of man which. I added onion and green pepper to meat. I also added a layer of fresh spinach to the layers. Very quick and inexpensive that was enjoyed

My mother has been making this for over 30 years..A few differences in the recipe: Mix the cottage cheese in after you add the Large Shell Noodles to the sauce. Also mix in about 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese. Bake for 35 - 40 Minutes then top with cheese to your liking bake additional 10-15 minutes. If you mix this with Ragu you won't have Sloppy Joe Casserole. I usually double up on the recipe and serve with Salad. My family loves this and my husband loves the leftovers for lunch!

I originally found this recipe a couple of years ago in a Taste of Homes magazine and have been making it ever since. It's awesome and the kids really love this one as does everyone else. I always add a little parmesan in with the cheddar on top and it gives it just a little more depth.

love this. One of the few casseroles I make that my husband actually requests.
