BEEF AND NOODLE CASSEROLE

1 package (8 oz) no-yolk noodles

2 lbs lean ground beef

1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce

2 tbsp flour

2 cups low-fat cottage cheese

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper

1 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp basil

1/2 cup low-fat Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook noodles according to package directions. Remove from heat and drain in a colander. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray; add meat and cook until browned. Drain meat in a large colander and rinse with hot water to remove any fat. Return meat to skillet and stir in the tomato sauce and flour. Simmer for ten minutes. In a bowl, combine cottage cheese, sour cream, onion, bell pepper and spices. Spray an oblong casserole dish with non-stick vegetable spray. Put half of the noodles in the bottom of the casserole dish. Spread the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Top the cottage cheese mixture with the remaining noodles. Cover with the meat mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top. Let set at least 10 minutes before serving.
