     One Dish Pasta

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   Low-fat
Servings   6
Preptime   55 min

1 pack pasta
1 can low fat spaghetti sauce
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 small zucchini, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon water
1 cup reduced fat mozzarella, shredded

Cook pasta in boiling salted water for 1-2 minutes less than the package directions say (so it's still quite firm and little undercooked). Drain and return to the pan. Toss with about 2/3 of the can of spaghetti sauce. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, mix together ricotta, cottage cheese, parmesan and pepper. Stir til smooth. Set aside. Next, saute the zucchini, onion, and garlic in the olive oil. Add oregano, basil, salt and water.
Cook until water has evaporated and zucchini is tender-crisp. Make sure the onion doesn't burn. Set aside. Assemble as follows in a 2 quart casserole dish that you've sprayed with Pam. First, put in about 1/2 of the cooled pasta, pat down with the back of your spoon. Then spread out the ricotta cheese mixture. Next, make a layer with the zucchini mixture. Again, pat with the back of your spoon so the zucchini nestles into the ricotta. Sprinkle with about 1/2 of the reduced fat mozzarella.
Then put in the rest of the pasta. Pour the remaining sauce over the top. Sprinkle the top with remaining mozzarella. bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
