INGREDIENTS:
16 oz cottage cheese
1/2 c fresh basil, sliced into ribbons
1/2 c fresh parsley
1 t garlic salt
1 t Italian Seasoning
1 egg
1 T oil
2 c fresh mushrooms, quartered
2 c fresh spinach
8 oz of uncooked lasagna from Explore Cuisine
32 oz of spaghetti sauce

DIRECTIONS:
In a medium bowl combine cottage mix, basil, parsley, garlic salt, Italian Seasoning and egg. Mix together and set aside.
In a skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Saute the mushrooms until they soften and they are starting to shrink. Add in spinach to wilt.
Combine mushroom and cottage cheese mixture.
Using a 9X13 baking dish pour 1/3 of the sauce into the bottom.
Add half the uncooked noodles, top that with 1/2 the mixture and 2/3 c of cheese. Repeat. You will end with a third layer of sauce.
Cover casserole dish with foil. Bake at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes.
