Ingredients

  • 12 uncooked large lasagna noodles
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (16 oz.) carton 1% low-fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Romano cheese, divided
  • ½ cup fat-free cream cheese (4 oz.)
  • 2 ½ tsp. dried basil
  • 1 cup chopped prosciutto or ham (4 oz.)
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1 (26 oz.) jar fat-free tomato basil pasta sauce

Method

  1. Mince the garlic and put it in a bowl,
  2. Add one 16 ounce carton of 1% low-fat cottage cheese.
  3. Add a 1/2 cup fat free cream cheese. A half cup is 4 ounces.
  4. To this mixture add 2 tablespoons of grated Romano cheese, 2.5 teaspoons of basil, half a teaspoon of red pepper flakes and 1 large egg.
  5. Mix this together well.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  7. Set aside the cheese mixture and chop up the prosciutto.
  8. Cook the lasagna according to the packet instructions.
  9. Then using a 9×13 inch dish, put a 1/2 cup of tomato basil pasta sauce, fat-free, and spread it around.
    Then add three lasagna noodles and top that with 1 cup of the cheese mixture and 1/3 cup of prosciutto and then a 1/4 cup of the pasta sauce again. Repeat these layers 2 more times so you use a total of 12 noodles.
  10. Top with the remaining pasta sauce, 1/4 cup of Romano cheese minus the 2 tablespoons we put in the cheese mixture and then 1 cup of shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese.
  11. Cover with foil and bake it for 45 minutes.
  12. Take the foil off and bake it for an additional 15 minutes.
