Serving Size: 1 cup


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3 cups (24 ounces) spaghetti or pasta sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • Sliced mushrooms, fresh or canned, drained (optional)
  • 1 container (12 ounces) low fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded


  1. Cook ground beef and onion in a large skillet or electric fry pan. Stir to prevent sticking. When ground beef has turned brown, transfer mixture to a colander set over a bowl and rinse with hot water to remove grease.* Return hamburger mixture to skillet.
  2. Add spaghetti sauce, garlic, and water to skillet. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add uncooked noodles. Stir and cover with lid. Turn down the heat and cook 5 minutes.
  4. Add thawed spinach to the skillet. Add mushrooms if you like. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon cottage cheese over the top. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Put the lid on and let it heat another 5 to 10 minutes until heated through and noodles are tender. For a pretty appearance do not stir the dish once cheese has melted.


*Do not pour grease down the drain. Let grease harden, then put it in the trash.
