Rigatoni Bake

1 lb box Rigatoni noodles
1 lb ground beef
1 large jar favorite spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1-2 c shredded mozzerella
minced onion
seasoned salt
garlic powder

Bring large pot of water to boil. Add 1 t salt and noodles. Cook until just before al dente. You don't want it too overdone because it will continue to cook in the oven. Brown meat with a sprinkle of minced onion, seasoned salt and garlic powder. Once meat is brown, drain fat and add spaghetti sauce (you may need to add an extra can of tomato sauce if it's not enough). Add cottage cheese and cooked noodles. Transfer to a 9 by 13 dish. Top with a layer of parmesan cheese and then mozzerella (I also add a little cheddar cheese for the extra tang...I recommend.) Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!!
