7 ounces dry small shell pasta, cooked, drained
2 cups cottage cheese
1 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves*
2 cups (9-ounce) frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrot vegetable blend, defrosted

  3. Break and slip an egg into each indentation. Cook, covered, over medium heat until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 5 to 7 minutes.
