This recipe is a definite keeper! It almost reminded me of a lasagna casserole. You could go so many different ways. I used lean ground turkey, low fat cottage cheese and sour cream, and a 2% cheddar cheese. I also added about 3 teaspoons of chopped garlic in the sauce. We both really liked this recipe and I ended up having two servings of it. It was so good! I’d figure out the points plus per serving, but I’ve seemed to have misplaced my calculator. When I find it, I’ll start putting in the points for some of these recipes too. :)

This weekend has been good for finding recipes. I really enjoyed the Banana Nut Muffin Tops, Crab Cakes, and this Sour Cream Noodle Bake.
