  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 3/4 cup 4% cottage cheese

  1. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, water, tomato paste, parsley, oregano and salt. Stir in pasta; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until pasta is tender, 20-25 minutes, stirring once.
