Total: 35 Minutes
Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 20 Minutes
Stand: 5 Minutes


1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (26-oz.) jar tomato-and-basil pasta sauce
1/2 (12-oz.) package multigrain extra-wide egg noodles
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Italian six-cheese blend
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil (optional)


1. Sauté onion and garlic in hot oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in pasta sauce, egg noodles, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium to medium low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender and liquid is almost absorbed. Stir in salt and crushed red pepper.

2. Stir together ricotta and 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls over pasta. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

3. Cook, covered, over low heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted. Remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil, if desired.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Classico Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce and Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Extra Wide Noodles.
