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 Shredded 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My parents recently joined a diet program, but my dad loves lasagna. My parents recently joined a diet program, but my dad loves lasagna. I found this and made it for them and man, it was good. The first time I made it, it was watery, so the second time, I undercooked the noodles a little bit, so they would soak up the water. Worked perfectly and it was so yummy! Doesnt taste like a "diet" food - it's a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm glad I read the reviews before I made this. 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.
