Impossible Lasagna

Impossible Lasagna 

No, this lasagna is not impossible to make. . .it just seems that it's impossible to have this much flavor in such a healthy preparation. You know how they say in the Army that "the difficult we do immediately, the impossible takes a little longer"? Well, this recipe, start to finish, takes just over 30 minutes.

Serves 6

8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/4 cup (3/4 ounce) grated Kraft House Italian or Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 cup (one 8-ounce) can Hunt's Tomato Sauce
3/4 cup (3 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat mozzarella*
1 cup skim milk 1/3 cup Carnation nonfat dry milk powder
9 tablespoons Bisquick reduced-fat baking mix
2 eggs or equivalent in egg substitute
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet sprayed with olive-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with olive-flavored cooking spray. Layer cottage cheese and House Italian cheese on bottom. Add Italian seasoning, tomato sauce, and 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese to browned meat. Spoon over cheese layer. In a blender combine skim milk, dry milk powder, baking mix, eggs, salt, and black pepper for 15 seconds on HIGH speed. Pour over meat mixture. Bake 30 minutes. Spread remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese on top and bake and additional 5 minutes. Let set 5 minutes before cutting.
