Special Equipment Needed

Makeover - How We Did It

We've made over a traditional lasagna that results in a savings of 140 calories and 11g of total fat, including 5.5g of sat fat, per serving by using extra-lean ground beef instead of sausage and decreasing the amount, using cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese, decreasing the Parmesan and using KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.


Substitute 1 container (15 oz.) part-skim ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.

Make Ahead

Assemble lasagna as directed. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, in 375°F oven 40 min. or until heated through.


Substitute 2 cups frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the browned ground beef. Add to pasta sauce in saucepan along with the garlic and oregano; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed.
