His and Hers Lasagna Take 3

January 5, 2010

Dinner, Recipes

When it comes to making lasagna, I want it to be easy, healthy and meaty for Brady while meat free for me. We don’t have lasagna very often, but when we think of it – it’s always good.

This morning we had a 2 hour delay for school because of ice/snow, so I didn’t have to leave until around 10am. It was so nice to have the morning to get some laundry folded and put away and make dinner. If we hadn’t had the delay, I don’t know when I would have made dinner – we might not have eaten until midnight. So that worked out well!

I had fun with my new DSLR camera while I took pictures as I assembled the meal. The recipe I made up for today’s version was this:

Hers:

  • 3 whole wheat noodles – cut in half to make 6 shorter noodles
  • tomato sauce
  • broccoli
  • spinach (squeezed out to drain excess liquid)
  • artichokes (drained to lose excess liquid)
  • cheesy mixture

His:

  • no cook lasagna noodles – probably 6 – they are short and flat
  • tomato sauce
  • 2 spicy Italian sausage – cooked in a skillet with the casing (yuck) removed
  • spinach
  • cheesy mixture

Cheesy Mixture

  • 1 c. low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 c. low fat ricotta cheese
  • 2 basil cubes from TJ’s
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. or so of Italian seasoning

The process went like this:

Sauce on the bottom of the pan.

Then add noodles (whole wheat are on the right side).

Then cover with cheesy mixture.

Then top with meaty sauce for the his side and veggies for the hers side.

Bake at 375 for about an hour or until it’s bubbly and hot.

So easy! I think we should have had company because we barely put a dent in this.

We had salads with these delicious pieces! You can guess what we are having for lunch tomorrow. Unless, I decide to go for some Progresso soup!

    This is such a great idea & a great fix for two people who want their lasagna a little different. Thanks for the post!
