Amazingly Easy Spinach Lasagna

By: Barbi

“The cottage cheese with chives gives it that extra flavor,
although this adds extra fat because it only comes in 4%.
I have also made it with plain low fat (1% or 2% )
cottage cheese and it still tastes great.”

2 cartons Deans Cottage Cheese w/ Chives
2 eggs
1 package frozen Spinach, defrosted and well drained
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
5 cloves garlic, shredded
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (low or no fat works well too)
coupla dashes onion powder
1/4 cup minced dried onions
coupla dashes garlic powder
coupla dashes sea salt

– – – Mix all together (save a quarter of the cheese for top)

1 large jar sauce (I like Classico Basil or Garlic)
1 pkg no boil lasagna noodles
1 10 x 10 baking pan (appx)

alternately layer the following:
sauce to cover bottom of pan
lasagna noodles
sauce to cover noodles
spinach cottage cheese mix
sauce to cover mix
lasagna noodles————heres the middle
sauce to cover noodels
spinach cottage cheese mix
sauce to cover mix
lasagna noodles
sauce to cover noodels

Cook 20 minutes in microwave.
Spoon out a part of the middle and test for heat – if still cold cook more.
Top with remaining mozzarella cheese
Cook 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted

Servings – 4 large slices

You may be wondering how I know the exact details about a home-made recipe.

I took the information off all the labels, and what was not given I
looked up on the internet at the “NUTRIENT DATA LABORATORY” located at:
http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp

If you want to look up items, just go there and click on “Search The Database”.
Then type in your item and it will give you a list of choices.
For example if you type in “garlic” it will list Garlic Powder, “Garlic, raw”
and a host of popular items that have garlic in them, such as “Progresso Garlic
and Pasta, canned”, “Pepperidge Farm Crusty Garlic Bread”, etc.

I entered all the items in a spreadsheet (Excel), tallied them up and
divided by 4 (assuming you eat that large of a piece, I do. 🙂

So, anyway, that’s how I did it, just incase you were interested.
