Recipes Easy Lasagna (Entree)

Number of Servings
    • 1 pound ground round
    • 1 (26-ounce) jar low-fat spaghetti sauce (low sugar added)
    • 1 (16-ounce) carton fat-free cottage cheese or fat-free ricotta
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 teaspoon dried leaf basil
    • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen creamed spinach, thawed
    • Cooking spray
    • 1 (8-ounce) package precooked lasagna noodles
    • 1 cup (4 ounces) pre-shredded part skim Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, rinse with hot water, and return meat to pan. Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage or ricotta and Parmesan cheeses, basil, and thawed spinach in a bowl; set aside. Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13 X 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over meat mixture; top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1-cup meat mixture, and 1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
