“No need to cook the noodles first, and only 240 calories per serving. This is from the book, "Quick & Healthy" by Brenda J. Ponichtera. I use the recipe as a starting point and change it however the mood strikes. If you don't have or don't like Ricotta, use three cups of cottage cheese, and process 2 cups in the food processor.”
