Do you have one of those recipes that everyone knows you for? For me, that recipe is my lasagna. Funny enough, it’s a recipe that I learned in a Home Economics class when I was in the 6th grade! No joke! It’s a simple recipe but oh so good. It’s also not a point friendly recipe…which is bad for me. Since my family has been requesting lasagna lately, I started the hunt for a point friendly version. So I now share with you the Weight Watchers Lasagna With Meat Sauce Recipe! It’s really yummy, cheesy and only 8 points per serving. I just make a salad with it and call it a night….because garlic bread is not my friend either.

Servings 9

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound of 97% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 cup of onion chopped - I do not really care for bits of onion in my meals, so I just season my ground beef with onion powder.
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried oregano
  • 1 bottle 26 oz of spaghetti sauce
  • 9 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 16 oz of low fat cottage cheese drained
  • 2 cups of reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • In a large skillet, brown the meat with the onions, garlic and oregano. Drain the meat if necessary.
  • Stir in the spaghetti sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • In a 9x13 baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of the sauce mixture to cover the bottom evenly.
  • Then layer 3 of the noodles, 1 cup of the cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  • For the next layer, start with 1 cup of the sauce mixture, 3 noodles, the rest of the cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  • Top with the last three noodles and the rest of the sauce mixture. Then cover with foil.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until heated throughout.
  • Uncover and top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Let lasagna sit for 5 minutes before serving.

    1. Hi Sabrina, I did not figure up the calories for this casserole. It can vary so much by the kind of cheese, meat and sauce that you use. If you can figure it up for the entire casserole according to the ingredients you use (low fat cheese, extra lean meat and making your own sauce will really cut down on calories), then just divide it by the servings.

  1. This is a question about the Weight Watchers Cheesy Meat Lasagna. I don’t like cottage cheese so can I substitute it with part-skim ricotta cheese and would it be the same points value?

    1. I’m not sure, only because I’ve never looked at it. I would compare the point values of each cheese and if they are the same, then you should be fine.
