Fake Kid-Friendly Lasagna December 5, 2007

This isn’t really Lasagna, but it is the same principle. It’s easy to do, using all jarred and prepared ingredients. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

1 box whole wheat pasta (I like penne for this)
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
1 container cottage cheese
1 small box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 package frozen Italian style meatballs (or veggie meatballs if you can bring yourself to eat them)
2 packages shredded Italian style cheese
Cooking spray

Pre-heat oven to 350.
Boil the box of pasta according to package directions.

In the meantime, thaw out your meatballs in the microwave, then cut them in half so they’ll go further.

Get out a gigantic bowl and mix together the pasta sauce, cottage cheese, chopped spinach, and 1 package shredded cheese. You can also add some sauteed squash or carrots or whatever will make you feel healthier.

When the pasta is done boiling, mix it in with the sauce mix. Add in the meatballs and stir it all up.

Spray a giant casserole dish with cooking spray (or use two smaller dishes), then pour in your pasta. Put in the oven for about a half hour. Take out, cover with the remaining package of cheese, then stick back in the oven until the cheese is melting and bubbly (about 20 minutes).
