  1. Cook the noodles al dente according to package directions. Drain well, and return to the pot.
  2. Add the spinach, mushrooms, cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, and 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese to the noodles, and toss to mix well.
  3. Coat a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, and spread the noodle mixture evenly in the dish. Place the egg substitute, evaporated milk, and nutmeg in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Pour the mixture over the noodles, and sprinkle the remaining 3 tablespoons of Parmesan over the top.
  4. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake at 350°F for 50 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake uncovered for 10 additional minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and a sharp knife inserted in the center of the dish comes out clean.
  5. Remove the dish from the oven, and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
