This recipe is from my mom and was my favorite growing up.  Simple ingredients, but so good!
 Start by parboiling your noodles for 6 minutes, the should not be too soft.  Set aside.
Mix your cheese filling.  Then stuff your noodles with this mixture.
Place in a 9x13 pan and cover generously with sauce.  Bake in the oven. 
  Allow to set up before serving.
