So, I was looking online, and there I found one of my mom's favorite recipes: Poor Man's Lasagna. This was a really simple version using the No Yolk Noodles dumplings. Here's the recipe:
|1 bag No Yolk Noodles dumpling style|
2 cans Prego Heart Smart Traditional Italian Sauce
1 pound shredded Mozzarella cheese (2% skim)
Boil the noodles and cook through just like with any pasta. Then, put a layer of noodles on the bottom of the pan. Cover with sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Put a second layer of noodles and sauce. Cover top almost completely with cheese.
You can leave it at that, but I added Italian Seasoning and a sprinkle of grated parmesan to the top layer.
Slide in the over and bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese looks baked and some of the noodles start to brown.
Here's what I liked about the meal:
- Super easy and only used four total dishes: one pot, one pan, strainer, spoon.
- Vegetarian! Great for serving mixed groups of veggies and non-veggies. You could probably even try it with a vegan cheese-substitute.
- Low Calories! 518 calories for an italian dish with this much cheese is simply amazing!
Here's what I didn't like:
I didn't like the noodles. They are egg noodles and they taste like eggs. I think it would be possible to get used to the taste of the noodles, but being so used to flour/wheat noodles, they just tasted off. Now, Philip liked it and didn't have a problem with the egg taste, so it could just be my picky taste buds.
