Seriously the BEST lasagna I have ever had...seriously

I tweeked it a little, just to cut some calories off of the already 350! below is the original, under it is my substitutes!


*3 cups pasta sauce (like Classico Spicy Tomato and Pesto)
*16 ounces 2% cottage cheese
*1/2 cup grated parmesan
*9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
*8 ounces mozzarella cheese
*Approximately 4 cups mixed vegetables (I used spinach, carrots, sundried tomatoes, and zucchini)

Preheat oven to 400*. Spray 11 X 8 glass casserole dish.

Combine cottage and parmesan cheeses.
Place 3 uncooked noodles in pan.
Cover with 1 cup pasta sauce, 1/3 cheese mixture, 1/3 vegetables, and 1/3 mozzarella.
Repeat 2 more times.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake one hour.
Makes about 8 servings, ~350 kcal per serving.

I found this really good Parmesan substitute and you cant even taste the difference! My raw veggies were squash, zucchini, mushroom, and spinach. The pasta sauce I used was Ragu: heart healthy, it also had tomato chunks in it that was delish! I made it the night before and through it in the oven the next night!
