Vegetable Lasagna

Leah Tidwell


1 1/2 c. chopped onion

6 oz. mushrooms, coarsely chopped

2 large stalks broccoli, chopped (about 2 cups)

16 oz. (2 cups) low-fat cottage cheese

1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley or 1 T. dried parsley flakes

8 oz. lasagna noodles, cooked and drained

2 tsp. minced garlic (2 lg. cloves)

1 T. butter or margarine

1/2 lb. spinach, washed and chopped

3 T. grated Parmesan

2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

2 eggs

Salt and pepper as desired

1 large jar Ragu or any prepared spaghetti  sauce. (I use chunky vegetable type.)


In a large skillet saute onion, garlic and mushrooms in butter until almost done. Add remaining vegetables and seasonings. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 5 min until broccoli is tender-crisp. Combine cottage cheese, Parmesan, parsley, eggs and pepper and salt. In 13x9 x2"pan spread a little sauce on bottom. Layer as follows: Half the noodles on the bottom, half the cheese mixture on the noodles, then half of th vegetable mixture, half of the remaining sauce, and half the mozzarella cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle the top with extra parmesan, if desired. Bake at 375 degrees, for 30 min. Let stand and cool for 10 min. before serving. This makes a huge pan full. I often bake it in two 8"x 12" pans and freeze one for later.




Polish Potato Casserole

Leah Tidwell


2 T. butter or margarine

2 T. flour

2 c. low-fat or skim milk

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 lb. keilbasa (Polish Sausage, sliced thin.)

4 large potatoes, peeled and sliced thin

1 large onion, sliced thin

1/2 lb. green cabbage, shredded, (about 2 cups) or more if desired


In a medium sauce pan melt butter and stir in flour. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually add the milk, stirring to eliminate lumps. Cook over moderate heat , stirring, until it begins to thicken. It will be thin. Add salt and pepper if desired. Set aside.


Grease a 2 1/2 to 3 qt. casserole. Spread one-third of the potato slices on the bottom, followed by one half the onion slices, one-half the cabbage, and one half the keilbasa. Add one-third of the sauce. Repeat with another third of the potato slices, the rest of the cabbage, onion and sausage, and another third of the sauce. Top with the remaining potato slices and the remaining sauce.


Cover the casserole and bake it in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour 15 min or until the potatoes are tender. If desired (and if there is enough liquid in the casserole, remove the cover for the last 15 min of baking time.


This makes a large casserole. I often skip all the layering and just mix the veggies and sausage together and pour all of the sauce over the top. It is lots easier, and doesn't make much difference in the finished product. This is a delicious one dish dinner, and even if your kids are picky they probably won't even notice the cabbage.
