Sausage & Peppers Baked Ziti

From EatingWell:  March/April 2013

This healthy baked ziti recipe doesn’t require any chopping and is made on the stovetop, so it is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. Using whole-wheat pasta adds fiber; opt for penne if whole-wheat ziti is hard to find.

4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling water according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add frozen vegetables and sausage; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid from the vegetables has evaporated, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  4. Stir tomato sauce, garlic powder, oregano and salt into the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in cottage cheese and the pasta. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Top with shredded cheese.
  5. Place the skillet under the broiler to brown the cheese, 1 to 2 minutes.
