Equipment

  • lasagna pan
  • instant read thermometer

Ingredients

  • 4 cups pasta sauce * you can use any type- *Classico is less W-W points
  • 450 g spaghetti noodles *I used half of a 900 package
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese (fat-free)
  • ½ cup cream cheese (fat-free)
  • 10 oz – can of mushrooms
  • 3 cups low-fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/175 degrees C and spray an 11X13 lasagna pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions, until al dente (if not using leftover noodles). Drain and set aside.
  • Cook ground beef, onions and green pepper (and mushrooms IF using fresh) on the stovetop, in frying pan until ground beef is browned. Drain and return to pot.
  • Add pasta sauce, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic and Italian seasoning to pot with cooked ground beef. Cook over medium-low on the stovetop, whisking until everything is incorporated.
  • Add mushrooms and cilantro. Remove from heat.
  • Mix spaghetti with sauce in lasagna pan (or in pot, then transfer to lasagna pan)
  • Sprinkle grated cheese on top, evenly distributed. *I like to finely grate the cheese for this recipe.
  • Bake for 20 minutes (uncovered), then turn up to broil (500 degrees F/260 degrees C for the last 2 minutes or until it begins to bubble and brown a little (be sure to watch it very carefully as low-fat cheese burns quickly)

Garnish

  • Garnish with green onions and serve.
