Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 9 lasagna noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups Small Curd 4% Cottage Cheese
  • 3 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese, divided
  • fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13- inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.

  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain.

  5. Place 3 noodles into the bottom of the prepared dish. Top with half of the cottage cheese mixture and spread to cover the noodles. Lay 3 more noodles on top of the filling and top that with the remaining filling mixture. Lay the last 3 noodles on top, sprinkle with the reserved onions and remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  6. Cover pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and broil for 3 minutes.
