Light Beef and Sausage Lasagna

December 15, 2020

This low-fat take on lasagna uses lean beef and turkey sausage for a protein-packed main dish. It's a warm comfort meal that's perfect for winter nights. If you're cutting carbs, swap out the whole wheat lasagna noodles for a low-carb version, like Ciao Carb's . Add a green salad and you've got the perfect meal!

  • Yields: 12 servings

1In a large skillet, cook the beef, sausage, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Set aside 1 cup spaghetti sauce; stir remaining sauce into meat mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until thickened.

2In a small saucepan, melt cream cheese over medium heat. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cottage cheese, egg and parsley.

3Spread meat sauce into a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with 3 noodles, Italian cheese blend, 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning and cream cheese mixture. Layer with remaining noodles and reserved spaghetti sauce; sprinkle with mozzarella and remaining Italian seasoning.

4Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Bake, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
