Makeover - How We Did It
We've made over a traditional lasagna that results in a savings of 140 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving. We replaced the sausage with extra lean ground beef and decreased the amount, used cottage cheese in place of ricotta cheese, decreased the Parmesan and used KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese.
Assemble lasagna as directed; cover. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, at 375F for 40 min. or until heated through.
