A lighter version of traditional lasagna that is quick, easy, cheesy, meaty and made in one pan.
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1lbs. ground beef, lean (I used 96/4)
  • ½ tbsp. garlic minced
  • ⅓ cup onion, diced
  • 3 Cups (1lbs 9 oz jar) Pasta Sauce (I used Whole Foods Roasted Vegetable)
  • 2 oz no bake whole wheat lasgana noodles, broken up
  • ½ cup Ricotta Cheese, fat free
  • ½ cup lite mozzarella cheese, divided
Instructions
  1. In a skillet add ground beef, garlic, and onion and cook until beef is no longer pink, breaking up any large chunks. Drain the fat.
  2. Add half the jar pasta sauce to meat mixture; mix until combined. Drop chunks of ricotta cheese over meat and then add lasagna noodles, covering some of it with the meat. Add remaining pasta sauce and top with mozzarella cheese. Set burner to low, cover pan with a lid and bake until noodles are soft and cheese is melted; about 15 minutes. Check pasta with a fork.
  3. Let it cool for a couple of minutes and serve.
