    1 (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
    4 cups hot cooked elbow macaroni (about 2 cups uncooked)
    2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
    1 cup 1% low-fat cottage cheese
    1 cup 2% 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.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped chiles, onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook 4 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with flour; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium; add tomatoes. Cook 3 minutes or until thickened. Add reserved 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, pasta, cheddar cheese, 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.
