My friend Renee and I did level 2 of Shred today – we avoid that level like the plague and now remember why – we think its the hardest one! I was a sweaty mess after that workout!
I made Renee and I this lasagna for lunch today, because no one in my family will eat it! I make it so its two GENEROUS servings and I don’t really have a recipe, but here goes:
- 4 small whole wheat lasagna noodles (these don’t need to be cooked ahead of time)
- 2 cups homemade marinara sauce
- 6 ounces 4% cottage cheese
- 1 egg
- crushed red pepper to taste
- Italian seasoning to taste
- 3.5 ounces mozzarella cheese, divided
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 8 ounces cooked spaghetti squash
Mix together the cottage cheese, 1.5 ounces of mozzarella cheese, egg and seasonings.
First layer is sauce, then lasagne noodle, then a layer of cheese, layer of spinach, layer of spaghetti squash and keep going until you run out of layers – I usually finish my top layer with sauce and then sprinkle 2 ounces of cheese on top.
Now, I made this last night, with the thought of cooking it this morning before work. I woke up at 7:00 – threw it in the oven at 350, then proceeded to go back to bed and I didn’t wake up until 8:10! So the top got a little overdone but luckily my friend didn’t mind!
And in true low maintenance form, I got dressed, put the lasagne in a shoe box because it was still hot, stopped and picked up the cake for office birthday celebrations and was at my desk at 8:50 – not too shabby!
And when I came into work there were two lovely coupons from my friend Cassie – turns out she knows I like Tabasco! 😀
My next door neighbors are huge American Idol fans, so Hannah and I are going over there for dinner – so it will be a late dinner post.
Alright, my break is over – see you after dinner!
