Moms Lasagna 101

Yesterday afternoon I decided after cleaning up a little a would go ahead and make dinner. My man and little ones favorite recipe of mine. Bet you cant guess what it is??? Its so simple to make! First just brown the meat and drain. I used 1lb. extra lean ground beef but its also good with extra lean ground turkey.

While browning meat bring a large pot of water to boil. Then add whole wheat noodles and cook to package directions.
Then add I jar of your favorite pasta sauce and let simmer.Next mix together 1lb. of your favorite cottage cheese (any fat works well) and 1/3 to 1/2 cup any fat sour cream. I always opt for low or non fat varieties.
When noodles are done lightly spray bottom of baking pan and add 3 of the noodles.
Layer with half the meat mixture.
Half the mozzarella cheese (I just eyeball it. Use as much or as little as you like).Dollop on all the cottage cheese mixture.
Spread it out evenly.Then repeat with noodles, meat, and cheese. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 min. in a 350 oven. Take out and eat and I promise you will not be disappointed. The little one had 3 helpings last night! She asked for a 4th but I told her she needed to rest her tummy! My throat was really hurting me and I wasn't very hungry so I unfroze some homemade chicken soup my mom had me and had that with a huge salad topped with hummus.
Later after dinner the little one announced she would be eating "cold basagna for breakfast".

I did make it to the gym this morning but my throat was really burning so my workout was kinda blah :(. I laid down for a bit when I got home and then got ready to go the dentist. Dun Dun Dah...........Man she killed my gums this time. Ouch! I was starving when I got home and my mouth was sore so I just quickly nuked a potato, heated up some soup and threw together a huge salad. Wish I would have had more time I am really craving butternut squash fries!! I see them in my near future...

Well the little one didn't have basagna for breakfast but she did have 2 helpings, cold for lunch.

Now off to tackle this mess and maybe cook up somethin sweet with all those bananas...I need some ideas....

I love going to the Dentist!!!!
