Recipe by TEJx3
I saw this recipe on the Today Show. I modified it a bit and this is the result. A lasagna you don't have to feel bad about eating. To be honest I thought I would never like lasagna with anything but meat in it. This is delicious!! We used the Barilla No Boil Lasagna Noodles and to my surprise they were great what a time saver!! With approx. 330 calories and 15 grams of fat per 7oz serving the only thing you loose is weight. This is truly GREAT! This was made with ground chicken. If you wish you could use ground 97% Lean turkey and save about 20 calories a serving, I prefer the chicken.
- 1⁄2 lb ground chicken
- 1 cup mushroom, sliced
- 1 cup green pepper, diced
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 26 ounces marinara sauce
- 15 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese
- 2 egg whites
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 4 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1⁄2 tablespoon sugar
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon italian seasoning (divided)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper
- 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
- 1⁄2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- 8 ounces lasagna noodles (Barilla No Boil Noodles work Great!!)
