Ingredients

Noodles

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated (I used half real parmesan and half dried)
  • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese shredded, 130g
  • pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of lower-carb pasta sauce I used "Classico Tomato Basil" but added some salt, splenda and basil to taste
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 90g
  • 6 tbsp 2% cottage cheese 90g
  • 1/3 chopped onion
  • 1 oz finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes optional
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Noodles

  • Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9x13 baking dish with tinfoil sprayed with oil or parchment paper.
  • In mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.
  • Next, add Parmesan cheese and spices. Mix to combine.
  • Fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming an even layer.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • When the "noodles" are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized "noodle" layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.

For The Filling

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, onion, peppers and  your spices. Cook until the meat is browned.
  • Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup of your sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Putting It All Together

  • Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer
  • Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.
  • Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Sprinkle a little parmesan and basil over top. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Tips

  • You can make these noodles ahead of time and refrigerate them or freeze them prior to making your actual lasagna! Simply freeze them flat on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper after lifting them off their initial baking sheet (making sure they aren't sticking). Then once frozen, place them in a ziplock bag. 
  • Rao's sauce is a popular low carb pasta sauce you can use in place of the Classico sauce I used.
  • Don't have cottage cheese? You can also sub this with ricotta cheese. But I promise..even if you do not normally like cottage cheese, you'll love it in this lasagna!
  • Try this lasagna with spicy sausage and additional peppers if you ever feel like a fun twist.

Storage

Store this lasagna covered in the fridge for up to 3 days OR freeze in an airtight container for a later day!
