Ziti Parmesan

12 oz pasta (ziti, or penne)
16 oz cottage cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 to 1 tsp crushed red pepper
pinch of oregano
pinch of basil
1 can of spaghetti sauce
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

cook the pasta to al dente. mix the cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, red pepper, oregano, and basil together. add the pasta and mix till pasta is covered.
put half the mixture in a baking dish. cover with half the spagetti sauce and then half the mozzarella. repeat the layers.
Bake at 350 (or 180 here) for 30-40 min.

We usually serve this with garlic bread or breadsticks with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to make us think we are at the Macaroni Grill! (yeah, right huh!)
