Delicious Spinach Meat Lasagna Recipe

[pinit]Lasagna Recipe @savedbyloves[pinit]

Do you love lasagna as much as I do?  It is a personal favorite, especially when I can eat it without guilt.  Today I am sharing my recipe for a protein, vitamin packed spinach and ground sirloin lasagna.  I use cottage cheese in place of half of the ricotta cheese to cut back on fat, with no compromise in taste!

INGREDIENTS:

12 lasagna noodles

1 pound lean ground sirloin or ground turkey

2 minced garlic cloves

24 ounces marinara sauce

2 cups cottage cheese

2 cups ricotta cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 egg

Add marinara to meat, stir and remove from heat.

Strain spinach and remove excess water.

Combine cottage cheese, ricotta, spinach, 1 cup of mozzarella, parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in mixing bowl.

Spread a thin layer of sauce with meat on bottom of 9×13 inch baking dish.

Place 3 cooked lasagna noodles over sauce.

Spread 1/3 of cheese mixture over noodles and spoon 3/4 cup of sauce over the cheese.

Repeat these layers, topping final layer of noodles with remaining sauce and remaining cup of mozzarella.

Bake in preheated oven at 375°F for 45 minutes.  Enjoy!
