Whole wheat cottage cheese pasta

Hey Everyone!  How's getting back into your daily routines going? It's been a busy week for me, trying to get back in to school, music, and exercise routine.Today I want to look at whole wheat pasta, it was a tough switch (moving from regular pasta to whole wheat) in our family because my dad is half Italian, it's still not always our favorite pasta to eat, but we realize the health benefit from it and only use white pasta for birthday's. We made cottage cheese noodles for lunch today and it turned out really good, everyone in my family really enjoyed it.We used whole wheat Penne noodles.Whole-grain pasta, in general, is higher in protein and dietary fiber than refined pasta. Whole grain pasta is made from flour that contains the entire grain kernel -- the bran, the germ and the endosperm. Traditional white pasta is made from refined durum wheat, or semolina, where the bran and germ are removed during processing. The bran, or outer skin of a whole grain, and the germ, or embryo of the grain, are nutrient-dense and contain vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.  

Cottage cheese is healthy because of its high content of  protein while being relatively low in fat,and is low in Carbohydrates and has lots of calcium.which over all makes this a very healthy dish to eat especially right after a work out,you could add even more nutrition and flavor by adding some steamed broccoli and garlic
Here's what we did...

Fat free cottage cheese 8 oz
1/2 pound whole wheat pasta
salt and pepper

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and then add pasta,boil for a few minutes until tender them drain.Add the pasta, cottage cheese,salt and pepper in a bowl  and mix together until well combined, serve warm.
P.S. if its to dry you can reserve some of the pasta water, a dash of  olive oil, or some red sauce.
