Baked Rigatoni

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.
