Spaghetti Pie

This is aa recipe for a nice meatless meal.  You can add meat to it  if you should desire to add cooked sausage, hamburger, ground turkey, pepperoni or similar.  Be creative.

1 lb pasta - spaghetti or similar
1 container low fat cottage cheese
1 can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
garlic powder

Cook and drain the pasta. Place into a large casserole dish.  Beat the 2 eggs and pour them over the noodles to bind them together during baking.  Spread the cottage cheese over the noodles.  Mix the tomatoes and tomato sauce.  Season to taste with the garlic posder and oregano.  Spread the tomato mixture over the cottage cheese. 

Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  At 30 minutes, place the mozzarella cheese atop the casserole and sprinkle some additional oregano on top.  Continue baking for another 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Remove from the oven and serve in slices like a pie.
