Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Time to Table: 1 Hour

Serves: 10 (1 cup per serving)


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup asparagus stems, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup sliced zucchini
  • 6 cups whole wheat bow-tie pasta, cooked
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish with non–stick cooking spray; set aside. In a Dutch oven, place olive oil. Add the asparagus, red bell pepper, tomatoes, and zucchini. Cook on the cook-top and stir over medium heat until vegetables are crisp tender (5 to 7 minutes). Add the cooked pasta, cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, lemon zest and pepper to Dutch oven. Mix well. Spoon the mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Cover the casserole with a lid or with foil. Bake the casserole for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheeses are melted. Remove the cover. Sprinkle the top of the pasta and vegetables with Parmesan cheese. Return to the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was super bland. I increased the quantities of vegetables, also added a red onion, dried thyme and also 1/2 cup extra cottage cheese as previous review said it was very dry. Well, it was still extremely dry and ridiculously tasteless. Won't be making it again.

This is an easy and excellent dish. Paired with a salad and warm baguette, it makes the perfect, hearty meal. Thinking the dish needed more moisture, I added 1/2 c. of Daisy Light Sour Cream. I did not but would also add a can of cream of mushroom soup to make a creamy, cheesy sauce. Overall taste was excellent.
