Great for potlucks, this lasagna is lighter than most but still cheesy and delicious. Great for potlucks, this lasagna is lighter than most but still cheesy and delicious.
Number of Servings: 8


    2 cups cottage cheese, 1% milkfat (not packed)
    1 large egg or equivalent egg substitute
    2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
    1 jar spaghetti/marinara sauce (tomato sauce)
    10 ounces Fresh Express Baby Spinach
    9 lasagna noodles
    1 cup water
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    3/4 tsp oregano, ground


Preparation: In a large bowl mix thawed and drained spinach, cottage cheese, 1 cup mozzarella, egg and seasonings.
Spray cooking spray on a lasagna tray or 13x9x2 baking dish. Layer 1/2 cup sauce, 3 noodles and 1/2 cheese mixture. Repeat layer.
Top with remaining noodles then sauce and sprinkle with 1 cup of mozzarella.
You can also sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top. Pour water around the edges and put a few toothpicks on top. This will prevent the cheese from sticking to the foil.
Cover with foil and bake at 350* for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until lasagna is bubbly.
Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
Note: You can also substitute chopped broccoli for the spinach.

    Loved this recipe but added low fat ricotta instead of cottage cheese and used whole wheat lasagne noodles.
    And I can't live without garlic so added a couple of cloves of that as well as some fresh basil and oregeno, and also some shredded chicken. Turned out great. My hubby loved it & He is picky.

    I used my homemade (spicy) tomato sauce and fresh spinach (previously steamed and cooled) to reduce sodium level.

    And... I removed the foil 20 minutes before the end of cooking to brown the cheese "gratin" style. Yum!

    IMPORTANT: if you follow this recipe exactly, it will come out to about 64 calories less than listed per serving! The nutrition facts are for 2 oz of mozzarella per serving (144 calories), while the recipe would come out to 1/4 cup of mozzarella per serving (80 calories)! I chose more cheese. :) - 2/3/10
