Perhaps you’ll think of this as more of a homemade Hamburger Helper, and you would not be wrong. That’s pretty much what Hamburger Helper is – a skillet lasagna of some sort.

I think it’s much tastier than a boxed version – and you can switch this up quite a bit to make it your own. I have never purchased a spaghetti sauce mix. So, I just leave out that ingredient as well as the tomatoes and instead use a chunky spaghetti sauce.

Let me know if you tried this and if you changed it up at all.

Enjoy and Happy baking! 💋

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix (2 ½ oz)
  • 2 C Cottage Cheese (1lb)
  • 3 C medium-size noddles, uncooked (egg noodles are great!)
  • 1 Tbsp basil
  • 1 Tbsp parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 ½ C tomatoes (I assume crushed)
  • 1 C water
  • 1 C shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)


  • Lightly brown ground beef in skillet* over a medium heat
  • Sprinkle half spaghetti sauce mix over ground beef
  • Spread cotage cheese over a layer of meat
  • Lay noodles over top
  • Sprinkle remaining spaghetti mix over top, as well as basil, parsley, and salt
  • Add tomatoes with their liquid, and water
  • Make sure everything (especially noodles) is moistened
  • Cover tightly with lid and simmer on medium heat 30 - 35 minutes or until noodles are cooked
  • When done, remove from heat or lower heat to low/keep warm. Sprinkle cheese over top. Place lid back on and let stand approximately 15 minutes before serving.


*The recipe calls for browning the ground beef in an electric skillet.  If you do not have one or do not want to use one, a stove-top skillet works perfectly.  Browning at 350 degrees and then simmering at 225 - 250 degrees.
