    Totally Tubular Pasta



    Recipe By : Looneyspoons Low-Fat Food Made Fun!
    Serving Size : 6 WW~~7 points
    -------- ------------ -------------------------
    12 ounces uncooked rigatoni -- about 7 cups dry
    1/2 cup chopped onions
    2 cloves garlic -- minced
    3 cups tomato sauce
    2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon each: dried oregano and dried basil
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    3/4 cup lowfat (1%) cottage cheese
    1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1 egg white
    10 ounces frozen spinach (chopped) -- thawed, squeezed dry
    1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim milk --
    (2 ounces)
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley -- optional

    Prepare rigatoni according to package directions, shortening
    cooking time by 1-2 minutes. Pasta should be slightly undercooked.
    Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain again. Set aside.

    Spray a medium saucepan with non-stick spray. Add onions and
    garlic. Cook and stir over
    medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add tomato sauce and next 6
    ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce
    heat to low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Remove from heat.

    Mix together cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and
    egg white in a large bowl. Add chopped spinach and stir until well
    blended. Add rigatoni and mix well.

    Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray. Spread 1/2 cup
    sauce over bottom of casserole, followed by 1/2 the rigatoni
    mixture. Pour 1/2 the remaining sauce over rigatoni, followed by
    1/2 the shredded cheese. Repeat layering: rigatoni, sauce, cheese.
    Sprinkle top with parsley, if using.
    Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. If desired, serve
    with additional Parmesan cheese.

    The recipes in Loony Spoons are good, but don't include the fiber content. Crazy Plates has cal, fat, fiber content so is very easy to convert to points. Yummy recipes definitely - real food!
