Easy to throw together, and only one dish and one cooking pot. You can also add mushrooms, onions, peppers, whatever, if you like; but I was trying to keep this at 6 ingredients or less.

Ingredients

1/2 pkg
frozen meatballs (about 1/2 pound)
1 jar(s)
spaghetti sauce, any flavor
8 oz
dry ziti pasta
12 oz
cottage cheese
2 c
shredded mozzarella
3 Tbsp
grated parmesan cheese

Step-By-Step

1Place meatballs and spaghetti sauce in a dish that can go in the microwave and the oven. It should hold about 2 quarts. Cover and microwave about 4 minutes on high, to heat sauce and meatballs.

2Cook Ziti pasta according to package directions, then drain.

3Stir cottage cheese into meatball-spaghetti mixture until well blended. Then stir in the cooked Ziti until it is distributed evenly.

4Top evenly with shredded mozzarella, then sprinkle Parmesan on top. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and cheese is melted and starting to brown. This takes about 30-40 minutes.

5Serve with tossed salad and garlic bread.
