Easy lasagna fit to please a crowd!
- 3 c. Daisy® Cottage Cheese
- 1 lb. 95% lean ground beef
- 2 25-oz. jars low-sodium marinara
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 tsp. dried basil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 3 c. shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese
- 12 no-boil lasagna noodles*
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drain the cottage cheese in a fine mesh strainer. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the prepared pasta sauce; set aside. In a medium bowl mix the beaten eggs, drained cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, and 1 c. of Mozzarella cheese. Starting with the sauce, layer the sauce, noodles, and cheese mixture in a 9x13" baking dish. (Noodles will not completely cover sauce - they swell as they cook.) Repeat the layers twice. Slightly press the noodles down into the sauce and then top with the remaining 2 c. of mozzarella cheese. Bake for 40-45 min. or until brown and bubbly. Let the lasagna stand for 15 min. before serving to aid in slicing. *There are several brands of no-boil lasagna noodles, varying in size. Use enough noodles to make 3 layers.
