Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Tomato Sauce, 400 mL
    * Ground Beef, 140 grams (1.5 cups cooked)
    * Onions, raw, 1 large (sliced thinly)
    * Peppers, sweet, red, raw, sliced, 2 cup (1 large)
    * Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    * Zucchini, 300 grams (1 medium, sliced)
    * Egg, fresh, 1 large
    * Cottage Cheese, 1% Milkfat, 2 cup (1 container)
    * Whole Wheat Lasagna noodles, 85 grams (4 sheets)
    * Mozzarella Cheese, part skim milk, 3 oz (shredded)

Directions

This is a variation on the Vegetable Lasagna recipe found on the PC Blue Menu 100% Whole Wheat Lasagne Pasta Noodle box. I've made the recipe a bit smaller, and added ground beef for added protein and iron.

Preheat oven to 350F. Soak noodles in cold water.
Cook ground meat, drain off any fat, and mix with tomato sauce and 3/4 cup water.
Slice vegetables with mandolin, if available. Saute onions, red pepper, and zucchini with olive oil until soft and golden.
Mix cottage cheese and egg.

Spray a medium-sized baking dish (9x9 would work nicely) with nonstick spray. Layer in tomato sauce, 2 noodles, more tomato sauce, veggies, cottage cheese, noodles, sauce, and remaining veggies, cottage cheese, and sauce.

Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes in centre of oven, or until noodles are cooked. Uncover and add shredded mozzarella. cook another 10-15 minutes or until golden. Let rest ~10 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings of 250 calories each - great to pair with a side salad and/or garlic bread - or 4 meal-sized servings (370 calories, 35 g protein)
