A Family Favorite

Inspired by Casa's in Fort Wayne I found a great recipe for baked mostaccoli and have been making it for a few years now. It's become one of our favorite meals, and one that I take to family events a lot, b/c it's so easy to prepare ahead of time and then bake off when you are ready. After it's baked, it's a great freezer meal too.

Baked Mostaccoli
1 lg jar spaghetti sauce with or without meat
1 lb mostaccoli- cooked just shy of al dente
1 lb small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesean
2 eggs beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
8 oz mozzarella cheese

Mix all ingredients except sauce and half of mozzarella. In bottom of 9X13 pan, pour enough sauce to cover bottom. Add a few tablespoons of sauce to pasta mixture. Spoon mixture into pan. Spread w/ rest of sauce and top w/ remaining cheese. Bake @ 375ยบ for 45 minutes. If made ahead, increase cooking time to 1 hour.
