Servings 1 lasagna

Ingredients
 

Sauce

  • 1 can diced tomatoes 15-ounce can
  • 1 teaspoon granular sugar replacement Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Meat

  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/8 cup diced white onion
  • 16 ounces ground chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika

Lasagna

  • 6 sheets oven ready lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup part skim milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup reduced fat, part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat parmesan cheese

Instructions

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Sauce

  • Drain tomatoes and add them to a blender. Add the seasonings and blend until smooth. Set aside

Meat

  • Heat a large pan over medium/high heat. Grease with cooking spray
  • Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about one minute. Add diced onion and cook until slightly soft, about another 2-3 minutes
  • Add ground chicken, whole, and brown the side of it. Start breaking up the chicken then add the seasonings
  • Continue to break up and cook the chicken until completely cooked, all the pink is gone
  • Add the tomato sauce and stir to combine then set aside

Lasagna

  • Grease an 8x8 casserole dish with cooking spray
  • Add a layer of the meat/sauce to bottom. Just a very thin layer, barely enough to cover the bottom
  • Add two whole lasagna noodles, slightly overlapping, then split another one in half (longwise) to fill the remaining space
  • Top with half the remaining meat/sauce, then 1/2 cup of ricotta and 1/2 cup shredded cheese, spreading to evenly layer
  • Repeat this layering process one more time, noodles, meat/sauce then cheese. Top with the parmesan cheese
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes then uncover and bake for another 5 minutes, for the cheese to get slightly browned (Double check the directions of your specific box/brand of lasagna noodles to ensure an optimal cooking time)
  • Let rest for 15 minutes before cutting

  1. Has anyone tried lowering points by using whole wheat/grain lasagna noodles and/or fat free ricotta and/or fat free cheeses?
