The handwriting on this card is very different from the cursive on several others, so I’m guessing it was written out by a friend and shared. People used to do that sort of thing. Now we just email or text the recipes to our friends and no one knows how bad our writing is!
This particular recipe calls for shredded American cheese – I personally would use shredded cheddar or mozzarella, or even a blend of colby & jack cheeses. It is very similar to the “lazy day lasagna” recipes I have posted in the past and would be rather easy. Probably tasty too. You can replace the Hunts Prima Salsa with any type of spaghetti sauce. It also could use some meat in my opinion.
Macaroni & Cheese Italia

Combine cooked macaroni with Hunts Prima salsa & water. Place half in buttered 2 qt oblong baking dish. Top w/ half of the cottage cheese, sprinkle w/ salt & pepper. Add a layer of half the shredded cheese. Repeat layers, in order. Top w/ shredded cheese. Bake at 350º 35 to 40 min until bubbly. Makes 6 servings.
