White Bean Macaroni Casserole

I got this recipe about 8 years ago and I have since tweaked it into my own. Makes for a tasty meatless dish

12 oz macaroni noodles
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup milk
1 TB parsley (fresh or dried)
1 TB chives(fresh or dried)
1/2 TB oregano(fresh or dried)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups white beans(also works well with black beans, kidney beans, navy beans, whatever you like!)

1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/4 cup shredded parmesan

Boil and drain your macaroni. Return to cooking pot, add beans and toss with seasonings

In a blender combine cottage cheese, tomato sauce and milk. Blend until smooth.

Pour cottage cheese mixture over pasta and gently combine.
Pour pasta into a greased casserole dish.

Top with bread crumbs, cheddar and Parmesan cheese.

Cover with foil that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, remove foil and bake 10 minutes more.
