1 pound hamburger, 95% lean or better
1 (26-ounce) jar low-fat spaghetti sauce
(We used Classico Four Cheese Pasta Sauce.)
1 (16-ounce) carton fat-free cottage cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8-ounce) package precooked lasagna noodles
1 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat mild cheddar cheese, shredded
chopped fresh parsley (optional)
2. Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage and Parmesan cheeses in a bowl; set aside.
3. Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over meat mixture; top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup meat mixture, and 1/3 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles.
4. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.
5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
