Layered Lasagna

Our house is a big fan of pasta. In small portions. It’s not always a fan of our bodies. It’s a love-hate relationship really.


I love love lasagna but I hate all the time it takes. This is super easy, quick, and picky family approved.




Ingredients:


1 lb ground beef*

1 onion chopped

1 tbsp fresh minced garlic

1 3/4 cups spaghetti sauce*

1 tbsp Oregano

6 oz Dreamfields Penna pasta*

1 cup Daisy full fat cottage cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese










Directions:


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees


In a stovetop skillet, brown the hamburger with the onion


Start cooking the pasta according to the package


Drain off the grease


Put back on the stove


Add in the garlic, sauce, and oregano


Drain the noodles and put them in the pan with the hamburger, mix it all together


In a greased glass baking dish, add about half of the meat noodle mixture


Layer the cottage cheese


Add the rest of the meat noodle mixture


Top it off with mozzarella cheese


Bake for 15-20 minutes


Needs to be heated through and the cheese melted


Adding a salad or a vegetable can complete the meal

* * To Note


For this I used:


Grass-fed ground beef. Bison, turkey, or other meat could be used.


Organic spaghetti sauce (watch the sugar and added ingredients on the sauce label, the sugar can sneak in).


We use Dreamfields Pasta or gluten-free but any penne could be used.


Any substitutions would alter the sugar and carbs levels of the final numbers listed here


Partial shopping list:

Grass fed beef

Onion

Garlic

Sauce
