    4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 lb. total)
    1 egg white
    1/2 of a 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
    1/3 cup low-fat cottage cheese, drained
    4 oz. part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (1 cup)
    1-1/4 cups light spaghetti sauce with garlic and herbs (half a 26-oz. jar)
    2 Tbsp. tomato paste
    6 oz. dried multigrain or whole wheat spaghetti, cooked according to package directions, and drained (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place each chicken breast between plastic wrap; lightly pound with flat side of meat mallet to about 1.4 inch thickness.

2. In bowl stir together egg white, spinach, cottage cheese, and half the
mozzarella; spoon on chicken, leaving 1.2-inch border. Roll up from narrow
side. Place, seam sides down, in 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Combine
spaghetti sauce and tomato paste; spoon over chicken. Bake, covered, for
25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake, uncovered,
about 25 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F) and cheese is light brown. Let stand 10 minutes. If desired, serve with spaghetti. Serves 4.
