  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 7 minutes and drain. While the pasta is cooking, start making the sauce.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and add the sausage and cook all the way through. Remove the sausage from the skillet and slice the sausage, set it aside. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Next add in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and tomatoes paste and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the Italian seasoning, salt, sugar, spinach, and cottage cheese to simmer for a few minutes.
  • If your skillet is large enough add in the sausage and pasta and mix. If not add the drained pasta back into the pot you cooked the pasta in, then add the sausage and then the sauce mixture and mix well.
  • Coat a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray and pour the pasta mixture in. Sprinkle the cheese on the top of the pasta. Place in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown.
