EASY SKILLET LASAGNA

1 pound ground beef

½  onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup) or 1 Tbsp. dried onion

3 cups (24 ounces) spaghetti or pasta sauce

½  teaspoon garlic powder

1 ½ cup water

8 ounces egg noodles

Sliced mushrooms, fresh or canned, drained (optional)

1 container (24 ounces) low fat cottage cheese

1 ½  cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook ground beef in a large skillet or electric fry pan. Stir to prevent sticking. When ground beef has turned brown, remove grease. If there is not a lot, I use a paper towel to wipe excess grease out. Be very careful since it is very hot! Add mushrooms and cook for two minutes.

Add spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, onion, and water to skillet. Bring to a boil. Add uncooked noodles. Stir and cover with lid. Turn down the heat to 300 and cook 5 minutes.

Spoon cottage cheese over the top. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Put the lid on and let it heat another 5 to 10 minutes until heated through and noodles are tender. For a pretty appearance do not stir the dish once cheese has melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Get ingredients together. Read the recipe carefully as I forgot to put water in the picture.

Brown your beef and drain or “towel” the grease. If you use fresh onion, cook it with the meat.

Add the Vitamin D–mushrooms are the best natural food source of vitamin D 🙂

Add the other ingredients except noodles, cottage cheese and cheese. Bring to a boil.

Add the noodles to the boiling sauce. Egg noodles work by far the best since they have a shorter cooking time.
