Make It

HEAT oven to 375°F.

MELT butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions; cook and stir 3 min. Add mushrooms, carrots and garlic; cook and stir 6 min. or until carrots are crisp-tender. Add flour; cook and stir 2 min. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach, 1 cup cheddar and Parmesan.

MIX cottage cheese and basil. Place 3 lasagna noodles on bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with layers of half the cottage cheese mixture and 2 cups vegetable mixture. Cover with 3 noodles, remaining cottage cheese mixture and 2 cups vegetable mixture. Top with remaining noodles and vegetable mixture; cover.

BAKE 35 to 40 min. or until heated through. Top with remaining cheddar; bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until melted. Let stand 10 min. before serving.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient changes, such as using BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN 2% Milkfat Low Fat Cottage Cheese, and substituting 1 pkg. (7 oz.) KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese for the 8-oz. pkg. of KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, result in a savings of 40 calories and 6g total fat, including 4g sat fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with garlic bread and a mixed green salad.
Substitute
Substitute fresh parsley for the basil.
