Trans-fat Free


4 slices bacon
1 pound ground beef, lean
or ground white meat turkey
1 cup onions
2 cloves garlic
peeled and minced
3 cups marinara sauce
low sodium
½ teaspoon basil
dried sweet or 1 Tbs. fresh, minced or julienned
½ teaspoon marjoram
10 ¾ ounces cream of mushroom soup
1 can condensed, regular or low sodium
5 ½ ounces milk, low-fat
about half the soup can
1 pinch nutmeg
15 ounces ricotta cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese
1 whole eggs
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
or 2 Tbs. fresh Italian parsley, minced or julienned
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground, or to taste
9 whole lasagna noodles
cooked according to package directions, drained and cooled
½ cup mozzarella cheese
part-skim, shredded


In a large, deep skillet or sauté pan, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; spoon off fat.

Add ground meat, onion and garlic. Cook until meat is browned and no longer pink, stirring to separate meat. Spoon off fat. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in marinara sauce, basil and marjoram. Cook 2 to 3 minutes; set aside.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine condensed soup, milk and nutmeg. In another bowl, combine ricotta cheese, ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese, beaten egg, parsely and black pepper; set aside.

In a 13" x 9" x 2" or 3"-deep baking dish , spread 1½ cups of the meat sauce. Top with 3 lasagna noodles, spread with one-half of the soup mixture, one-half of the ricotta mixture, and one-third of the remaining meat sauce. Repeat layers. Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining meat sauce. Cover with foil and bake in preheated 375℉ (190℃) oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, 10 minutes longer, until hot and bubbly and the cheeses are completely melted and light brown.

Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
