MOSTACCIOLI WITH GROUND BEEF

Just another of my old, old recipes.

1 lb ground beef
3 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 egg
1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
8-oz Mostaccioli, cooked according to pkg directions
Grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Brown the ground beef in in a large skillet; drain well.

Return beef to skillet and add the spaghetti sauce; simmer 10 minutes.

Combine the cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, parsley flakes, salt, garlic powder, and pepper; set aside.

Reserve a half cup of the meat sauce; toss the mostaccioli with the remaining sauce.  Place half the mostaccioli mixture into the prepared pan.  Spread the cheese mixture over the mostaccioli.  Layer with the remaining half of the pasta and top with the reserved sauce.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.  Cover dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees 25 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
