Baked Mac and Cheese

Here is yet another mac and cheese recipe! :)This one comes from Cooking Light magazine.  I just added hot sauce to this one for some kick.  Enjoy.

4 1/2 cups (12 oz) uncooked penne
1 carton (12 oz) cottage cheese (we used 16)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan divided
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3tbsp panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp minced flat leaf parsley

1)Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2) Cook pasta according to package- drain and place in large bowl.
3) Place cottage cheese in a food processor and process until smooth.  Combine cottage cheese, cheddar, 1/4cup parmesan, salt, and pepper.  Add mixture to pasta and stir well.  Spoon into 11X17 glass or ceramic baking dish.
4) Combine remaining 1/4 cup parmesan, panko (we used extra here too), and parsley in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the top.  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
5) Preheat broiler- leaving dish in oven.
6) Broil pasta 1 minute or until top is brown.
