Delicious! Be sure to use a good quality sauce. I used my homemade sauce and changed the prep to make it truly a one pan meal, cooked in a sauté pan. After cooking the beef & onion I added a box of bow tie pasta (16 oz) and poured the sauce over the top along with about 1 cup of water. Covered the pot and let it simmer until the pasta was just al dente. At this point I stirred it all together, then added the cheese. We wanted a smooth cheese topping, so I combined the cottage cheese and monterey jack (I was out of mozz) in my food processor. I spooned this on top of the pasta, put the cover back on and let it cook for another 10 minutes, until the cheese was melted. Then I uncovered it, sprinkled the parmesan on and broiled it on low for 5 minutes, until the cheese and some of the bow tie edges were beginning to brown. After a 10 minute rest it was perfectly thick and tasted exactly like my favorite lasagna. This was so easy because I skipped the pasta pot and layering process.
