I love love love Lasagna so much! So new recipes are always welcome with a huge grin from me emoticon I think POOK_70's zucchini idea is perfect! I'm also thinking you could mix zucchine with smoked eggplant (we use this a lot in Turkey, my favorite veggie) when you get rid of the skin eggplant has a perfect meaty texture. So it could help cut back the meat.
Cottage Cheese is also great. I also don't need the extra cheese on top of the dish.
One thing I like is prepare the recipe but eat may be half a serving size with lots of green salad! Lasagna always goes great with salad emoticon
Thank you for posting this recipe. It got me pretty excited emoticon

Replace the ricota cheese with cottage cheese...if you are like me and love ricota then replace only half of the ricota.

My ideas to reduce the fat would be to use ground turkey instead of ground beef; low fat cheese; and perhaps instead of noodles use sliced zucchini. also, Spark Recipes has a great recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce.

If it's amazing, it won't be easy. If it's easy it won't be amazing. If it's worth it you won't give up. If you give up you're not worth it.

This recipe is pretty simple but wonder if you could use some substitutions to make it less fat ... the high number for saturated fat bothers me ...

3 cup PREGO Traditional Spaghetti Sauce
15 oz ricotta cheese
2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
6 cup lasagna noodles
0.25 cup water
0.75 lb lean ground beef

Instructions:

1. In 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef until browned, stirring to separate meat.

2. Spoon off fat. Add spaghetti sauce; heat through, stirring occasionally.

3. In 2-quart oblong baking dish, spread 1&1/2 cups meat mixture.

4. Top with three uncooked lasagna noodles, half of the ricotta cheese and half of the mozzarella cheese.

5. Repeat layers. Top with remaining meat mixture.
