  2. 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  3. 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  4. 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, undrained
  5. 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  6. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  7. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  9. 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  10. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  11. 6 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
  12. 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  13. 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  14. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  15. 1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free cottage cheese
  16. 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, salt, garlic powder, sugar and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the spaghetti, butter, egg whites and Parmesan cheese. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Top with cottage cheese and beef mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
