Spinach Lasagna

Easy Healthy Spinach Lasagna
Time 75 minutes

Serves 8

2 cups lowfat cottage cheese
2 egg whites or the equivalent of 1 egg substitute
2 cups shredded lowfat mozzarella cheese (freshly graded tastes best)
1 jar spaghetti sauce (32 ounces- I go for low fat and garlic/ mushrooms)
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach (if you love spinach you can do 2
9 or 10 uncooked lasagna noodles
3 cloves garlic chopped finely
3/4 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese- optional
How to make it
In a large bowl mix thawed and drained spinach, cottage cheese, 1 cup mozzerella, egg, garlic, and seasonings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray cooking spray on the bottom of a 13x9x2 baking dish
Layer 1/2 cup sauce, a noodle layer, and 1/2 cheese mixture
Repeat layer
Top with remaining noodles then sauce and sprinkle with remaining cup of mozzarella. You can also sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
Cover with foil and bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until lasagna is bubbly and brown on the edges
Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting and serving

I thought I would give an update on the spinach lasagna I posted a few days ago. I made it for supper tonight and it was awesome. I put the spinach, cheese and all the rest of the ingredients except the noodles together along with two eggs. It was so very good. 1~29~2012
