  • Drain sausage mixture; return to skillet. Stir in spaghetti sauce and oregano. Add 1/2 cup water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Stir into meat sauce. Spread 1/3 of the meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; cover with 3 noodles and half the cream cheese mixture. Top with layers of 3 noodles, half the remaining meat sauce and 3 noodles. Cover with layers of remaining cream cheese mixture, noodles, meat sauce and reserved cheese. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.

Healthy Living

Save 50 calories and 6 grams of fat, including 4 grams of saturated fat, per serving by preparing with turkey Italian sausage, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

Easy Cleanup

Spraying the foil with cooking spray before using to cover the lasagna helps prevent the foil from sticking to the cheese on top.

Variation

Substitute extra-lean ground beef for the sausage and 1 thawed 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach for the peppers. Squeeze spinach to remove excess liquid before adding to cooked ground beef and onions with the spaghetti sauce and oregano.

    I make this all the time. Everyone loves it. I have also change this recipe and it is just as good. Instead of pork sausage I use chicken sausage and instead of spaghetti sauce I used Alfredo sauce. Yum yum

    I love cream cheese, but enough is enough! I made extra meat sauce (1 lb ground beef and 1 lb Italian sausage with approx 48 oz of spaghetti sauce), but even this amount of meat sauce could not offset the overbearing taste of the cream cheese mixture. I couldn't finish my plate and definitely will NOT be making this dish again!
