1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes

1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups (16 ounces) fat-free cottage cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, water, tomato paste and spaghetti sauce mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
