Vegetable Noodle Bake

Traditional lasagna fixin's (minus the meat) make up Vegetable Noodle Bake, a satisfying casserole shared by field editor Dixie Terry, Goreville, Illinois. The egg noodles are a great substitute for the usual lasagna noodles. "If you're out of hamburger, serve the dish and no one will even notice it's meatless because it's so tasty," Dixie assures.

    Very easy and delicious, but to bulk it up, I added cooked ground beef and twice the cottage cheese to feed my family of 4 twice.
