Million Dollar Casserole1 lb. pasta (your choice), cooked - macaroni (on hand)
1/4 cup sour cream
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic salt - garlic powder & additional salt if needed
1 tsp. pepper
28 oz. jar spaghetti sauce (flavor = your choice) - 26 oz. & rinsed jar with an oz. or so of water
additional veggies (optional)
shredded cheese (your choice), enough to cover top - mozzarella
Put half of the cooked pasta in bottom of a 9x13in. baking dish. Combine sour cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, onion, Parmesan cheese, garlic & pepper. Spoon cheese mixture over noodles. Pour remaining noodles over cheese mixture. Pour spaghetti sauce over casserole. Sprinkle any additional veggies on casserole & top with cheese. Refrigerate overnight, then bake at 350 degrees for 45 min.
You know the drill - layer wafers, pudding and bananas. End with whipped topping, sprinkle crushed vanilla wafers and a few dashes of cinnamon to top. (On occasion I've done a meringue top. That decision lies completely up to you)
Why cinnamon & crushed vanilla wafers you ask? 1) A little cinnamon never hurt anybody (unless you're allergic, of course) 2) Cinnamon gives it a little color on top 3) Crushed wafers give it that polished look 4) Lastly, they keep the plastic wrap from sticking to the whipped topping.
