1 lasagne


  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 2 ½ cups KRAFT Part Skim Mozzarella Shredded Cheese, divided

  • 2 cups light ricotta cheese

  • ½ cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 (700 ml) jar pasta sauce

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 12 lasagna noodles, uncooked


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, mix 1-1/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese, the ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the parsley and egg until well blended; set aside.

  2. Drain meat; return to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce. Pour water into empty sauce jar; cover and shake well. Add to skillet; stir until well blended.

  3. Spread 1 cup of the meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, one-third of the ricotta cheese mixture and 1 cup of the meat sauce. Repeat layers two more times. Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1-1/4 cups mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Cover tightly with greased foil.

  4. Bake 1 hour. Remove foil; continue baking 15 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting to serve.


Serving Suggestion: Serve with a leafy green salad tossed with KRAFT Calorie-Wise Italian Dressing.

Shortcut: Adding water to the sauce helps cook traditional noodles during baking, so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time.

Easy Cleanup: Placing a layer of sauce under the first layer of noodles will help prevent the noodles from sticking to the bottom of the baking dish.
