Skinny Bow Tie Lasagna

This is my "lazy lasagna" recipe. It's a family favorite and it's quick and easy to prepare. Which is one of the reasons why I like making it in the weekend. As much as I love to cook those are the days when I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen! It can also be made ahead of time and is a great freezer meal.

Skinny Bow Tie Lasagna
Serves 6
Cal 330, Carbs 27.5, Fat 11.6, Fiber 3.5, Protein 27.5

12 oz. bow tie pasta
1 lb lean ground sirloin or turkey (I used 93/7 ground turkey)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tbsp. dry Italian seasoning blend
2 cups marinara sauce
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cups reduced fat shredded cheese of your choice (I like cheddar and mozzarella cheese)
Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium high heat brown meat, drain, and add in the garlic, Italian Seasoning, and Marinara Sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

While meat is simmering combine the cottage, Parmesan and half of the shredded cheese.

To assemble lasagna add half of the pasta to a casserole dish. Top with some of the meat, cheese mixture, and shredded cheese. Repeat.

Bake at 375 for 20-25  minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly. Enjoy!
