Kitchen Tips
Healthy Living
Save 40 calories and 4g of total fat, including 2g of sat fat, per serving by preparing with extra-lean ground beef and 1 pkg. (7 oz.) KRAFT Mexican Style 2% Milk Finely Shredded Four Cheese, adding 1/3 cup, instead of the suggested 1/2 cup, shredded cheese to each layer.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Note
If you only have 1 (13x9-inch) baking dish and want to free it up for other uses, line the empty dish with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Assemble lasagna in prepared dish; cover with additional foil. Freeze until firm. Use foil handles to lift lasagna from dish; rewrap. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to serve, unwrap lasagna and place in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; cover with foil. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then bake as directed.
