This is a keeper! I am always looking for meatless dishes to stretch the grocery budget, and also to have during Lent. My husband and kids are wild about it. I use fresh broccoli and carrots, lightly steamed. I also use half cottage cheese, half ricotta (both low fat). I find that is a good combination of texture and moisture. And instead of parmesian cheese, I use a Italian-style cheese blend from Aldi's. I recommend spraying the pan with cooking spray, cooking the pasta in the water that you steamed the veggies for added flavor. I would recommend letting the dish stand 5-10 min before cutting so it has a chance to "set up". This is delicious with warm Italian bread and a green salad.
