Cheesy Pasta, Veggie,
& Egg Skillet Meal
|1 pkg. (7 oz.) small shell
2 cups low-fat (1% or 2%) cottage cheese
1 tsp. tarragon or marjoram leaves, crushed
|2 cups fresh steamed or
thawed frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot vegetable
blend (about 9 oz.)
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Drain thoroughly. Meanwhile, evenly coat 10-inch non-stick
omelet pan or skillet with spray. Add drained pasta. Stir
in cheese and tarragon until pasta is evenly coated with
cheese. Add steamed or thawed vegetables. Stir until evenly
coated with cheese. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally,
until heated through and mixture begins to sizzle, about
5 to 10 minutes. With back of spoon, gently make 4 indentations
in pasta mixture. Break and slip an egg into each indentation.
Cover and cook until whites are completely set and yolks
begin to thicken but are not hard, about 5 to 7 minutes.
For variety, you can use a different veggie blend and
pasta shape each time you make it. To scoop up every morsel,
serve with crisp-crusted French or Italian bread. Finish
the meal with fresh fruit for dessert. Makes four servings.
