Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 large sweet onion diced
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 24- ounce jar of pasta sauce
  • 2 cups rotini pasta
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Salt pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Fry ground beef with diced onion; add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Boil rotini al dente, according to package directions.
  • Add cottage cheese to hamburger/onion mix.
  • Pour pasta sauce over mix.
  • Stir in cooked pasta.
  • Scoop mixture into greased 10 x 15 casserole dish.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

Notes

TIP: Al dente is the ideal consistency for pasta. The pasta will be tender and will still have a slightly firm texture when you bite into it.
TIP: For an even quicker cooking time, ground beef can be cooked ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
TIP: If you do thaw and eat it the same day, add extra baking time and check to be sure you’re not burning the edges.
