  • 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.
