Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 350°F.
2
Brown sausage with onions and peppers in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, beat Neufchatel and milk in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Combine mozzarella and Parmesan. Reserve 1-1/2 cups; add remaining to Neufchatel mixture; mix well.
3
Drain sausage mixture; return to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce and oregano. Add 1/2 cup water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Stir into meat sauce.
4
Spread 1/3 of the meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; cover with 3 noodles and half the Neufchatel mixture. Top with layers of 3 noodles, half the remaining meat sauce and 3 of the remaining noodles. Cover with layers of remaining Neufchatel mixture, noodles and meat sauce; sprinkle with reserved cheese mixture. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray.
5
Bake 1 hour or until heated through, uncovering after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as Italian turkey sausage, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, result in a savings of 50 calories and 6g of fat, including 4g of saturated fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
Tip 2
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.
Tip 3
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 the cooked ground beef mixture along with the pasta sauce and oregano.
