 Ingredients List

  • 1 cn Hunt's No Fat spaghetti
  • -sauce
  • 1 pk Yolk-free egg noodles; *

* Any substantial pasta will work. Macaroni, twists, bowties, etc. Avoid
more delicate pastas such as Angel Hair or Vermicelli.

Serves 4-6

Cook the noodles until al dente. Drain.

In a large skillet, saute the onion, garlic, and the sausage. (I find that
the Gimme Lean products don't "crumble" very well, so I pinch off small
pieces kind of like mini-meatballs.) Add the seasonings, the sauce, and
the cottage cheese. Let simmer for a few minutes. Add the noodles and heat

Just before serving, top with the cheeses. The Asiago melts beautifully.

NOTES : My husband absolutely loved this simple dish. The Gimme Lean really
did impart a strong sausage taste and feel. The cottage cheese added a
creaminess, use more if you like creamier sauces. You could also puree the
cottage cheese to make it smoother, but the few chunks didn't bother us.

I've been using Asiago cheese quite a bit recently. I like the richness
that just a small serving imparts.

We like spicy foods, so I used a lot of the red pepper flakes. They really
are good with the Gimme Lean.

Steamed broccoli was a nice accompaniment, and I would have liked some good
bread, too.
