Lazy Lasagna (b/c aren't we all lazy?)

1 pound ground round

1 (26-ounce) jar low-fat spaghetti sauce

1 (16-ounce) carton fat-free cottage cheese

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking spray

1 (8-ounce) package precooked lasagna noodles

1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat mild cheddar cheese

Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan.

Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage and Parmesan cheeses in a bowl; set aside.

Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over meat mixture;

top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup meat mixture, and 1/3 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles.

Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, and

bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Cool and Freeze. Serves 8
