Introduction

A recipe created from another recipe. The spinach doesn't really turn the dish green but it adds a lot of green. A recipe created from another recipe. The spinach doesn't really turn the dish green but it adds a lot of green.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1/2 pound of Whole Grain Rotini
    1 package frozen squash puree
    1 package frozen spinach
    1 1/2 cups colby and monterey jack cheese
    1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
    1 cup milk
    optional: 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard

Directions

Boil and drain the whole wheat noodles using box instructions.

Defrost Spinach in the microwave. Wring out extra water by placing spinach in a few paper towels and squeezing.

To move the meal along faster, put squash puree, milk, and cottage cheese into a separate pot and heat to boiling. When it hits a boil reduce the heat to a simmer.

Add the defrosted spinach and cheese and stur mixture until well combined. Then add the whole wheat noodles.

At this point you are done but if you want you could bake it in the oven for an additional 15 minutes with a crumb topping. I did not do so in this recipe.

Serves 3, 1 and 3/4 cups servings.
