  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. With a potato masher, mash beans slightly in skillet. Add mushrooms to skillet; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the egg and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
