Ingredients:

4 lasagna noodles, broken into thirds 

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup chopped onions

2 frozen garlic cubes

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Ground black pepper, to taste 

1 cup tomato sauce

3/4 cup reduced-fat cottage cheese

1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions.
  3. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add in the garlic cubes and cook, stirring occasionally for a minute more.
  6. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper into the pan. 
  7. Stir in tomato sauce, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 3 minutes. 
  8. Meanwhile, mix the cottage cheese and mozzarella cheese in a small bowl and set aside.

To Assemble The Lasagna:

  1. Spread 1/4 cup of the sauce into the bottom of a lightly greased, small baking dish (6×6 or smaller).
  2. Line the bottom of the baking dish with noodles to fit the pan if needed.
  3. Top the noodles with the sauce, followed by the cheese mixture. 
  4. Repeat these steps 2 more times until all the noodles, sauce, and cheese are used up. 
  5. Place the baking dish on a large baking sheet to catch any spills and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes or until cheese on top has melted.

Makes 2 servings. Count each serving as a complete meal. Enjoy!
