Camping Trip and a simple recipe

Went camping for a 4-day weekend.  It was heavenly -- beautiful.  Kind of sad, since it's the last trip of the season.  Now we have to clean up and put away the camper.  Hopefully we'll be back at it in March, or April at the latest.

The weather was perfectly "fall."  We saw lots of deer, and that kept Mollie (our dog) entertained.  Also the thousands of squirrels running around.  You'd think she'd get used to it, but each squirrel seems to be important to her!

I made a simple spaghetti casserole and I wanted to tell you how I did it.  I was going for a lasagna-type dish, only simple.

First layer (8 x 8 inch pan):  10 oz. spaghetti, cooked.

Second layer:  8 oz. low-fat cottage cheese, one egg, beaten, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, salt & pepper.

Third layer:  Mozzarella cheese

Fourth layer:  Spaghetti sauce.

Bake until bubbly!

Suggested additions:  You could add a layer of veggies (zucchini, egg plant, spinach, or a mixture.)  Also, you could certainly put meat in the sauce or use "meat crumbles."

I don't have a picture of the food, so I'll post some of the camping.

This one was taken out of the camper window!
