Baked Spaghetti-6 Points

Baked Spaghetti
12 ounces whole wheat spaghetti
1 lb 96% lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups no-sugar-added spaghetti sauce (I used Ragu No Sugar Added Tomato and Basil Sauce)
4 cups 1% cottage cheese
2 1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (Here is what I used and it worked great!)
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. In a large skillet, brown beef, onion, and garlic. Drain fat. Add spaghetti sauce and heat through. Meanwhile, combine cottage cheese, 2 cups, mozzarella, and 1/4 cup Parmesan. In a 9x13 casserole dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, layer 1 cup of meat mixture, half the spaghetti, half the cheese, and half the remaining meat mixture. Repeat layers. Dish will be very full. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and add remaining cheeses. Bake an addition 10 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
10 servings
We had this for dinner last night. It was good, but different for us because we are used to a sweeter spaghetti sauce, but really it was good and I would make it again! The serving size is very filling. I had been looking for a Spaghetti recipe that was healthier and used less points that my family would enjoy and I think i found it, my kids ate it well.
