Triple Cheese Spaghetti

  • 6 oz. dry spaghetti pasta
  • 3/4 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) finely grated Romano cheese
  • 2 cups (16-ounce jar) prepared spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry basil
  • 2 tsp. dry oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 4 oz. part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

 

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain completely. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine ricotta and Romano cheeses, 1 cup spaghetti sauce, basil, oregano and pepper. Set aside remaining 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Mix cooked pasta with cheese mixture, stirring until pasta is distributed. Place in a casserole dish coated with vegetable oil cooking spray. Top pasta and cheese mixture with shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover with lid or foil and bake 20 minutes. Remove cover; continue baking until cheese bubbles. Remove from oven and let stand for three minutes.

 

Cut into 4 large or 6 smaller servings. Top each portion with remaining spaghetti sauce before serving.
