Ingredients

  • 36 Ounces Marinara (jarred or your own)
  • 9 Ounces Lasagna Noodles (gluetn-free, oven ready)
  • 2 Large Garlic Cloves (peeled, minced)
  • 2 Large Eggs (whisked)
  • 1/2 Cup White Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 8 Ounces Mushrooms (cleaned, sliced)
  • 5 Ounces Spinach (fresh, washed)
  • 2 Cups Mozzarella (by volume, low-fat, shredded)
  • 24 Ounces Hiland Dairy Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Ounce Parmesan (shaved)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and spray 13x9 inch casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  • Next, in a small bowl, quickly crack open and whip your eggs with a fork or whisk. Then, in a large bowl, combine the minced garlic, mozzarella, cottage cheese, and eggs. I added salt and pepper to taste into the filling.
  • After that, use ¾-1 cup of pasta use to coat the bottom of the casserole dish and then place your first layer of lasagna noodles. Then put a layer of the cheese mixture (3/4-1 cup) over the noodles.
  • Now, sprinkle a handful of spinach, mushrooms, and onions over the cheese mixture. Top the vegetables with more pasta sauce and add another layer of noodles.
  • Repeat the building process until the casserole dish is almost full. Any remaining filling can be added to the casserole dish along the sides. Use it to fill in any open spaces. This will help keep the lasagna from falling apart.
  • To finish up, add one final scoop of sauce and evenly spread it over the noodles and sprinkle it with the Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place the pan into the oven to bake for 50-60 minutes or until the noodles are soft. Once it's done, garnish and serve!
