Skillet Lasagna

I love Italian food & I always remember my mom making the best lasagna for my brother and I when we were growing up.  This is a great way to enjoy it and feel good about eating healthily.

Recipe from Skinny Kitchen dot com.
Yields 8 servings.
236 calories per serving.

1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 tbsp minced garlic
1.5 c mushrooms, sliced
1 c onions, chopped
1 c zucchini, chopped
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp salt & pepper
6 dried whole wheat dried lasagna noodles, broken into 2 inch pieces
1 jar marinara sauce
2 c water
3/4 c fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 c part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook ground beef in a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking into pieces, until almost cooked through, about 4 minutes.
Stir in garlic, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, red pepper flakes, salt, & pepper.
Cook over medium-high heat until vegetables are soft; stir often.

Sprinkle lasagna noodles into the skillet, then pour in pasta sauce & water over top.
Cover & cook, adjusting heat as necessary to maintain a vigorous simmer, until noodles are tender (about 20 minutes).

Remove skillet from heat.
Dot tablespoons of cottage cheese over noodles then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Cover & let skillet stand for 5 minutes.
