Makeover Savings

We've made over a traditional lasagna that results in a savings of 120 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving. We replaced the sausage with extra lean ground beef and decreased the amount, used cottage cheese in place of ricotta cheese and used KRAFT 2% Milk Natural Shredded Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese.

Make Ahead

Prepare as directed except for baking; cover. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, at 375°F 40 min.

    I'm glad I read the reviews before I made this. I doubled the amount of beef and pasta sauce. I used ricotta cheese and mixed in the cheese and a beaten egg and some pepper with the ricotta. It was a massive hit with my family and my kids couldn't get enough of it, they kept coming back for more.
