Ingredients

½ pound lean ground beef (15% fat)
½ cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 ½ cups spaghetti sauce 
1 cup water
8 ounces wide noodles (about 8 noodles)
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
½ cups (12 ounces) low-fat cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Stir ground beef, onion, and garlic together in a large skillet over medium-high heat (350 degrees F in an electric skillet) until meat is browned.
  3. Add spaghetti sauce and water to the skillet and bring to a boil.
  4. Add uncooked noodles in 2 layers and stir around to cover the top with sauce. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Squeeze the spinach to remove liquid and stir into the noodle mixture. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Spoon cottage cheese over the top. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover and simmer 5 to 10 minutes until the lasagna is heated through and the noodles are tender.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
