Lower Carb Lasagna

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 31, 2009

GinnyL’s Lower Carb Lasagna
by: GinnyL at Dr. B’s Place 

 

INGREDIENTS:

Noodles

6 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cream cheese – softened

 

Meat Sauce

1 pound ground beef
6 ounces  ground pork — or turkey (I have used sausage patties also)
1 tablespoon  minced garlic
1 small  onion — chopped
15 ounces  diced tomatoes — (canned)
15 ounces  tomato sauce
2 tablespoons  parsley
2 tablespoons  Splenda — (or 1 packet Stevia)
1 teaspoon  salt
1 teaspoon  basil leaf
1/4 teaspoon  nutmeg

 

 

 

Cottage Cheese Layer


3 cups cottage cheese — (2–12 oz. cartons)
1/2 cup  grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon  parsley
1 teaspoon  salt
1 teaspoon  oregano
4 cups shredded Jack cheese — (or mozzarella)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Noodles: 

Beat softened cream cheese together with cream and salt. 

Add eggs one at a time, beating until smooth. 

Spray 2–9 x 13" cake pans generously with non-stick cooking spray. 

Divide mixture evenly into both pans. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. 

Set aside and cool completely.

Meat Sauce: 

Brown meat, pour off grease.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes. 

Reserve 1/4 cup of meat sauce for top.

Cottage Cheese Layer: 

Mix cottage cheese together with parmesan, parsley, salt, and oregano.
Take one pan with noodle at the bottom, and layer 1/2 each of meat sauce, cottage cheese mixture, shredded cheese, and then layer the other noodle on top. 

Repeat layer.  Top with the reserved meat sauce, sprinkle with parmesan cheese. 
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, or if refrigerated, bake 1 hr.  Let rest for 15 min. before cutting.

NOTE: When asked how the noodles turn out, GinnyL had this to say:

"Yes, I’ve made it a couple times.  They turn out great, but make sure you spray the pan with nonstick spray first, and let it cool before removing.  To remove it just sort of roll it up and then unroll it over the lasagne.  The first one you can just leave in the pan and use that pan to layer the rest."

Thanks Ginny, you always come up with wonderful recipes.
