Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
