If you are a pasta loving family like ours you'll love this post. I know I was super excited when my box arrived with all the goodies you see above. I was running through my head exactly which lasagna recipe I wanted to try first. We love pasta, it's "what's for dinner" at least a few times a week in some format. Sometimes it's a side dish, and sometimes it's the main course. Either way we go through a lot of pasta, and a lot of add-ins like Red Gold tomatoes and ground beef. Thankfully my kit came with both so all I had had to pick up was some cheeses!
Below you can find a simple lasagna recipe any pasta lover will enjoy.
½ cup water
1 (28 ounce) can or 2 (15 ounce) cans Red Gold® Crushed Tomatoes
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Red Gold® Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano
Ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 pound Laura’s 96% Lean Ground Round, or ground turkey, cooked and drained
1 (16 ounce) box traditional whole wheat lasagna noodles, uncooked
1 (15 ounce) carton low fat cottage cheese
2 cups shredded low fat mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated low sodium Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350o F. In large mixing bowl combine water, tomatoes, black pepper, Italian seasoning and ground round, stir to combine ingredients in the sauce.
Cover the bottom of a 9x13x2 inch baking pan with 1½ cups of sauce mixture. Arrange 1/3 of noodles on top of sauce, slightly overlapped. Top with ½ of cottage cheese, ½ of mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of sauce. Repeat layers and top with last 1/3 of noodles and the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1 to 1½ hours; until noodles are cooked. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 12 Servings
