Italian Pasta Bake

2 cups fussilli pasta or 3 cups Ziti
2 cups tomato sauce or canned, crushed tomatoes (season heavier if using tomatoes)
pepper, salt, ascorbic acid, onion powder, oregano, basil, whatever you have on hand, garlic
1 cup cottage cheese
1 oz. grated Parmesan
grated mozzarella, sour cream, zucchini, mushrooms, optional


Cook and drain pasta. Grease a baking dish, heat some oil (olive if you have) in a skillet and add sliced zucchini and mushrooms. Sautee some minutes and add some garlic and other seasonings. Mix everything (veggies, sauce, pasta, cottage cheese, not parmesan) in a bowl, pour into dish and bake at 350-400 for 40 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan after half the baking time. Let stand some minutes before slicing.
