From "Taste of Home - Busy Family Recipes" magazine

1 pound ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 envelope sloppy joe mix (I used 1/2)
1 cup water
1 can 16oz tomato sauce
1 can 6 oz tomato sauce
1 package (7 ounces) small shell pasta, cooked and drained
1 cup (8 ounces) cottage cheese

In a large saucepan, cook meat over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the sloppy joe mix, water, tomato sauce and paste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until heated through. Remove from the heat; stir in the pasta.

Spoon half into a greased 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Top with cottage cheese and remaining pasta mixture. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted.
