Easy Yummy Rotini Bake

This recipe has been a good one to substitute for making Lasagna. It's easy and kids seem to really like it!

Rotini Bake

12 oz. uncooked curly rotini or small tube pasta
1 lb ground beef
1 jar( 26 oz.) spaghetti sauce
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 carton cottage cheese (16 oz.)
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (divided)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook noodles according to package directions and drain.

In frying pan, brown and drain beef while noodles are cooking. Stir spaghetti sauce into beef.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, cottage cheese, 1 cup mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. Gently fold cooked pasta into cheese mixture. Spread third of the beef mix over bottom of a greased 9X13 pan. Place half the pasta mix over beef. Layer another third of the beef over noodles. Layer remaining noodles over top, followed by remaining beef mix. Cover and boake for 40 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Return to oven and bake for 5-10 min more, or until cheese is melted. Makes 6-8 servings.
