4 Cheese Pasta Florentine Recipe

This is one of the best new recipes I have tried in awhile. It was even a little bit more delish on day #2 for lunch!

3 c uncooked mostaccioli noodles
1 pkg (8 - 10 oz) frozen chopped spinach
4 oz cream cheese - cube it up
1 c Cottage Cheese
2 eggs
8 oz (1 small package) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c Parmesan cheese

-cook pasta according to directions on package
-thaw/cook spinach according to the package as well. Once the spinach is ready & drained add it with the cream cheese in a medium/large bowl & mix until the cheese melts.
-Then add the cottage cheese and eggs - stir well.
-once the pasta has cooked drain it and add it to the spinach mix, stir in the mozzarella cheese.
-Put mixture in an 8" or 9" dish. Then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
-Bake for about 25 Minutes at 375 - or until the center is set.

I paired this up with soft rolls and garlic green beans/carrots last night - it was really good & smelled great while it cooked!
