Kraft Kitchens Tips

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 spaghetti sauce in saucepan along with the garlic and oregano; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed.
