    Wasn't sure about the cottage cheese, and didn't tell the family that it was in there otherwise they wouldn't have eaten it! However, they all wanted second helpings! I added some mushrooms (it's the law that we have mushrooms in our spag bol!). A really tasty dish which I will definitely make again!  -  10 Jul 2010


    Had this recipe a few weeks before I tried it. I thought the spaghetti itself would go a bit funny and as I work nights, I thought it was one of those meals that had to be eating when cooked. So tried it on my day off, really enjoyed it and my son took the leftovers to work the next day,so will be making this again  -  18 Nov 2009


    I'm not a very experienced cook but want to learn. I picked up this recipe off my iPhone app. All I can say is wow! My wife and 3 year old daughter who can be a little critical of my cooking loved it! They both cleared their plates and wanted more! Thanks!  -  30 Nov 2011
