Cheesy Comfort

A new adventure tonight - I made lasagna for the first time ever!  I used a super easy recipe that I've seen in a few places - including here.  Basically it's just cottage cheese, mozzarella, lasagna noodles, pasta sauce, and veggies.  It turned out well although it didn't really stay together with all the veggies in there - still tasted great though!  My lasagna was accompanied by a spinach, pine nut, and blackberry salad with honey and fig balsamic.  I usually put some cheese on my salads but I figured my cheese allotment was filled for tonight. :)
Here's the recipe:
Easy Veggie Lasagna
  • 9 uncooked whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1 jar (~3 cups) pasta sauce (I used Muir Glen Chunky Tomato Herb)
  • 16oz low fat cottage cheese
  • 8oz shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
  • ~4 cups chopped veggies (I used yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, and asparagus)
  • crushed red pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 400 deg F
  2. Spray 9x13 (or 11x8 might be better if you have it, I didn't- it worked but the dish was a little big for the noodles) baking dish with canola oil
  3. Lay down 3 noodles
  4. Cover with 1/3 of pasta sauce, 1/3 of cottage cheese,  1/3 of veggies, and 1/3 of mozzarella.  Sprinkle with crushed red pepper if you like things spicier.
  5. Repeat step 4 two more times
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hr 15 min (that's how long it took me, the recipes I found said an hour though so your mileage may vary)
  7. That's it!
