Melody's Mock Lasagna Casserole

Here is a main dish that both adults and kids will like. It is easy to prepare and uses ingredients that many people have on hand already. Thanks to my friend Melody for this.

1 16-oz. package twisty noodles, cooked and drained
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups sour cream
2 pounds hamburger, browned
1 30-oz. jar spaghetti sauce
2 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon garlic salt
(Mozzarella cheese to sprinkle on top)

Stir together first three ingredients and spread in 9 x 13" pan. Combine remaining ingredients and spread on top of the noodle mixture. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
