Makeover - How We Did It

We've made over a traditional lasagna that results in a savings of 150 calories and 11g of total fat, including 6g of sat fat, per serving by using extra-lean ground beef instead of sausage and decreasing the amount, using cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese, decreasing the Parmesan and using 1 pkg. (7 oz.) KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

Substitute

Substitute 1 container (15 oz.) part-skim ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.

Variation

Substitute 2 cups frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the browned ground beef. Add to pasta sauce in saucepan along with the garlic and oregano; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have Boston Butt trimmed and ground whenever it Boston butts go on sale. I have Boston Butt trimmed and ground whenever it Boston butts go on sale. At my stores this is a free service. You may be shocked at just how little liquids other than fat are in ground pork as well as much less fat. You get a lot more meat for your money even with the bone. If spiced few can tell the difference. If I use regular gr. beef in a recipe that calls for lean gr beef, I follow the same procedure I always do with ground beef brown, drain and rinse in hot water.

What I've started doing is adding chopped onion, green pepper and mushrooms in with the ground beef (I usually use ground turkey) to really pump up the homemade taste. It does take a little longer in the oven, though. I'd add about another five minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Amazing! I added some greek yogurt to the cottage cheese mix and cooked it in my crockpot on low, my family at the entire crockpot of lasagna! I thought it would be an issue because of the cottage cheese but they were too happy too see lasagna on a weeknight to even care!

I finely pureed some carrots, onion and extra tomato and added to the beef mixture to stretch it a little futher. No one even noticed there were extra veggies! My 9 year old son was licking his plate!

Great flavor. The only change I make is instead of 1 large tomato, I add 1 can petite diced tomatoes (undrained).
