1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 cups of chopped spinach
1 tsp oregano
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
16 oz cottage cheese

2 cups of shredded chicken
1 cup of cheddar
1/2 cup parmesan
1/2 cup milk
10 oz can cream of chicken soup

1. Preheat oven to 425

2. Boil 8 oz of penne pasta (should come out to about 4 cups)

3. Meanwhile . . . saute 3 cups of mushrooms, 1 cup onion, and 1 cup of bell pepper in olive oil

4. Add 3 cups of chopped fresh spinach, tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Saute until spinach wilts.

5. Put a 16 oz container of cottage cheese in the food processor and puree until smooth.
