I’m not really complaining (well, maybe just a little…) since I do live in Minnesota and it is January. The thing is, the cold weather makes me crave a nice comforting, warm casserole. Something that can serve a crowd, in case we invite a few people over to watch the game. Something easy, because I don’t want to spend the whole day in the kitchen. Oh yeah…can we make it lower in calories? I need to drop a few pounds….. Sound impossible?

It is so easy to make! Seriously, there is no need to boil the lasagna and you don't need to buy that leathery "no boil" stuff, either...just regular lasagna. This year, Red Gold has teamed up with a href="http://www.laurasleanbeef.com/" rel="nofollow" target="blank"Laura's Lean Beef/a to create the perfect "Skinny", yet meaty lasagna....and it's just as easy to make. Laura's Lean Beef is a Kentucky based company that produces lean, natural beef from cattle that are humanely raised without hormones and fed a natural diet of grass and grain. Like Red Gold, they are a family run company!/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3meX5-INGw0/VLXTyoHdCNI/AAAAAAAA2ko/TTkyJ5J9t3g/s1600/IMG8437.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="400" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3meX5-INGw0/VLXTyoHdCNI/AAAAAAAA2ko/TTkyJ5J9t3g/s1600/IMG8437.JPG" width="400" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv style="text-align: center;"div style="text-align: left;"b"Skinny" Lasagna /b(recipe courtesy of Red Gold Tomatoes)/divdiv style="text-align: left;"br //divdiv style="text-align: left;"Ingredients:br /br //divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1/2 cup water /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1 (28 ounce) can Red Gold® Crushed Tomatoes, or 2 (15 ounce) cans Red Gold Crushed Tomatoes/div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"2 (14.5 ounce) cans Red Gold® Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"Ground black pepper to taste /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1 teaspoon Italian seasoning /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1 pound Laura's 96% Lean Ground Round, or ground turkey, cooked and drained/div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1 (16 ounce) box traditional whole wheat lasagna noodles /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1 (15 ounce) carton low fat cottage cheese /div/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"2 cups shredded low fat mozzarella cheese /div/divdiv style="text-align: left;"/divdiv class="MsoNormal"div style="text-align: left;"1/2 cup grated low sodium Parmesan cheese/divdiv style="text-align: left;"br //divdiv class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: left;"Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Really. And even though I usually change at least a half dozen things in any given recipe, this time I left it as it was (except that I couldn't find whole wheat lasagna). Skinny? At about 330 calories per serving, it certainly is. My husband actually preferred the cottage cheese to the ricotta.
