    I followed the suggestions in the comments to use marinara sauce and add an egg to the cottage cheese. I also used carrots and zucchi8ni, very thinly sliced. I cooked it nearly twice as long as the recipe says to get the vegetables cooked through. - 3/16/09

    I liked this, but read other's comments and made a number of changes. I added a lightly beaten egg to the cottage cheese as well as some chopped spinach I defrosted. I doubled the zucchine added other veggies and crushed red pepper. I used a bottled marinara sauce not tomato sauce as suggested. - 1/15/09

    Added a box of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) and substituted diced, canned tomatoes for the tomato sauce. Very good --- if you don't expect the cheesy, gooey feel of a regular lasagna. I'd say it serves 8, not 6. I'll make it again! - 1/10/09

    I made this as a baked pasta dish, all mixed together with whole wheat penne & riggatoni mix. Was very good that way too. I also used 1 can chopped tomatos and 1/2 cup tomato sauce. I like the spinach idea and will add that next time - 1/2/09

    With my fresh herbs, some great-tasting fat-free cottage cheese and a different cheese blend instead of boring old mozzarella, as well as the squash fresh from my grandpa's garden, this recipe turned out GREAT! We had lots of leftovers and I can't wait to make it again next month. - 7/17/08

    the fam and i totally dug it, but i did double the amount of cheeses and zucchini and onions and added a whole yellow bell pepper into the mix. even with all that it didn't add too many more calories or fat and it was definitely worth the extraness!! - 1/5/08

    To eliminate the runnyness, another comment roasted the zucchini, then sliced and layered into the lasagna. That way, you don't have to add that egg to the cheese. I find that the cheese layers are much better without an added egg that makes them solid instead of soft and gooey! Tastes better too! - 3/30/11

    A tasty lasagna, though the prep time is intense. I like that it uses cottage cheese and it didn't really affect the taste, though it was a bit runny. I couldn't find zucchini though and made it with yellow squash instead - 1/18/08

    I added a lot of red pepper flakes to this and also used oven-ready lasagna noodles and added some water so they would be moist enough. I thought it was really good, but if I made it again I would add more zucchini. I thought the portions were on the low-end of acceptably filling. - 1/6/08

    I thought this was a great recipe, and easy to make too. It has a rich flavor without being too fattening, unlike traditional lasagna recipes that use a lot of cream and cheese. I didn't have enough zucchini so I added some sliced carrots too. Will def. make this again! - 11/27/07

  • I replaced the noodles with yellow squash. It was not runny at all but often I will either not cook the noodles first or only partially cook them so that the extra liquid is used to cook the noodles and not left in the pan to cause the mess. Very yummy! - 8/2/11

  • I have made a similar lasagna but I use zucchini as the noodles and leave the pasta out. To reduce the wateriness, I slice the zucchini ahead of time, put it in a colander an salt it. The salt draws a lot of the water out. After letting it sit for maybe an hour, I rinse it, pat it dry, and proceed. - 6/28/11

  • Warning: By the time I made my changes, my recipe was not as healthy! The advice to add an egg is good. I also used lowfat ricotta instead of nonfat cottage chs & reduced fat mozza., which was great (I think it's even lighter than part skim). I sliced the zucchini very thin. Yum!
