Baked Penne

Just a simple comfort food family meal that I've not transferred to the blog yet. Lisa, an old friend from SHS shared this with me years ago. 

Preheat oven to 350*

1 pound Penne (Ziti  - whatever)
32 ounces Spaghetti Sauce (homemade or purchased)
16 ounces Cottage Cheese
1 Egg
1 can black olives (I throw them in whole as my kids pick them out; says to slice)
1/2 lb Ground Turkey (or beef or sausage or SKIP THE MEAT and make this a meatless meal)
1/4 C shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/2 lb Mozzarella Cheese (I use all kinds)

Mix cooked pasta, cottage cheese and egg together. Pour in greased 9x13 pan. Set aside. Cook meat til done (or leave out), add sauce and olives. Mix with pasta mixture. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese on top and bake 25 minutes. Add mozzarella and bake 5 min longer (I often just add all the cheese before I bake).

I forgot about taking  a photo for the blog until AFTER the meal - and at that point it didn't look very appetizing.
