Looking for something simple and easy? This recipe isn’t fancy but it’s good, filling and inexpensive to make. I serve it with Italian Bread and a salad.
- ½ pound extra-lean ground beef (sometimes I use 1 lb. ground beef and
skip the oats
- 1 cup oats
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- 1 cup non-fat cottage cheese
- 3 cups rigatoni, cooked
- 1 cup part-skim-milk mozzarella cheese,
- ¼ cup Romano cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet, cook beef until browned and crumbled. Drain. Add oats to beef and stir well to incorporate.
Add spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese, and rigatoni to the beef and mix well. In a 13x9x2 baking dish, add rigatoni mixture and top with mozzarella and Romano cheeses. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted.
