Lasagna In A Jiffy
Yield: 8 Servings Preparation Time: 00:45

Lasagna typically takes longer to put together than it does to cook. Prepackaged convenience products, however, make this version easy to prepare. Serve with a tossed green salad, garlic bread and a hearty red wine.

1 Lb Ground Beef Cooking Spray
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce (26 Oz) 1 Pkg Lasagna Noodles (8 Oz), Cooked And
1 Carton Cottage Cheese (16 Oz) -Drained
2 Tbl Parmesan Cheese, Grated 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

Preheat oven to 350F. Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage and Parmesan cheeses in a bowl; set aside. Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over meat mixture; top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup meat mixture, and 1/3 cup Cheddar cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles. Cover and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/3 cup Cheddar cheese, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
