- 1 (8-ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 cup beef broth

What to Do
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
Meanwhile, cook ground chuck in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet. Stir in onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cover and cook over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in beef broth, tomato paste and oregano; set aside.
Combine sour cream, cottage cheese, garlic and salt. Add noodles, tossing to coat. Spread half of noodle mixture in a lightly greased 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Top with half of meat mixture, half of mozzarella cheese, and half of Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers with remaining noodle and meat mixtures.
Cover; bake 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses, and bake, uncovered, an additional 10 minutes.
