Skinny 3-Cheese Penne

I know a lot of people do meatless Mondays and although I haven't been doing that, I have been incorporating more meals that do not have meat.  The Skinny 3-Cheese Penne recipe from the Skinny Supper Club is a perfect meatless Monday recipe.  It is absolutely delicious and easy!

½ cup onion, diced
½ tsp minced garlic
23.25 oz jar Prego® Light Smart Traditional Italian Sauce
12 oz package penne pasta
½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
½ cup part-skim ricotta cheese
2 cups low moisture, part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh oregano, diced (or 1 tsp dried)
1 Tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, diced (or 1 tsp dried)

Instead of the suggested pasta sauce, I used my typical pasta sauce.


-Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook penne according to the package instructions for al denté, about 10 minutes.

-In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic until tender, about 3 minutes.

-Turn down heat to medium-low. Add the entire jar of pasta sauce to the onion and garlic, stir.

-Drain pasta and add to pasta sauce.

-In a medium size bowl combine cottage cheese, ricotta, 1½ cups of mozzarella and herbs.

-In a 9x13 pan, add ½ pasta mixture. 

-Then spread all of the cheese mixture evenly on top. Next, layer the remaining pasta. 

-Sprinkle the top with the rest of the shredded mozzarella.

-Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
