Ingredients
  1. 10 oz cooked 93% ground beef (2 Leans)
  2. 1 cup canned Italian diced tomatoes – less than 5 g of carbs per 1/2 cup – (2 Greens)
  3. 1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 Condiment)
  4. 1/8 tsp salt – optional (.50 Condiment)
  5. 1/8 tsp pepper (.25 Condiment)
Cheese Filling
  1. 4 oz or 1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese (2 to 3 g fat per oz) (1/2 Lean)
  2. 6 oz or 1 1/2 cups reduced fat mozzarella cheese, divided (1 1/2 Leans)
  3. 3 tbsp reduced fat parmesan cheese (3 Condiments)
  4. 2 tbsp egg beaters
  5. 1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 Condiment)
  6. 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (2 Condiments)
  7. 1/8 tsp pepper (.25 Condiments)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add tomatoes, garlic powder, salt and pepper to already cooked and weighed ground beef. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  2. Mix the ingredients for the cheese filling using only 3/4 cup of mozzarella.
  3. Fill the bottom of a baking dish with the meat filling and top with the cheese filling. Cover the top with the remaining 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake for 40 minutes until the top because bubbly. Let cool 10 minutes before slicing (the lasagna will hold together better). Divide into 4 equal portions. These freeze great in those Ziploc containers.
Notes
  1. 4 Servings with 1 Lean, 1/2 of 1 Green (Still need 2 1/2 Greens), and 2 Condiments per serving
