    2 chipotle chiles chopped, with 1 tsp adobo sauce
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 package of Tofurky Sundried Tomato Sausages
    1 cup finely chopped onion
    2 garlic clove, minced
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 28oz can of whole tomatoes, no salt added, chopped
    3 cups spinach
    4 cups hot cooked elbow macaroni (about 2 cups uncooked)
    1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella
    1 cup 2% low-fat cottage cheese
    1 cup 1% reduced-fat milk
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    1 large egg, lightly beaten
    Cooking spray
    3 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs


Preheat oven to 350.
Remove 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can; set aside. Remove 2 chipotle chiles from can; finely chop to measure 1 tablespoon. Reserve remaining chiles and adobo sauce for another use.
Place olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped chiles, onion, sausage, and garlic; cook 8 minutes or until onion is tender and sausage is a bit browned, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with flour; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium; add tomatoes and spinach. Cook 3 minutes or until thickened. Add reserved 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, pasta, mozzarella, cottage cheese, milk, Parmesan, and egg; stir to combine. Spoon pasta mixture into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray; top with breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
