Green Bean Lasagna

This is one of those cheesy dishes that uses only cheese as the lean, but I never seem to mind those recipes because I am a cheese lover you just need to watch the sodium. I also love green beans so this dish tastes very delicious to me. I know it isn't the same as regular lasagna but it is definitely a good substitute if you are craving it. Keep in mind to try and use 2% low fat cheese rather than fat free cheese because it melts better and won't taste as rubbery. Another choice to add to your lean and green meals! 

Green Bean Lasagna

1 1/2 cups green beans or 202.5 grams, cooked from frozen or canned (3 Greens)
1/4 tsp garlic salt (1 condiment)
1/2 tsp basil (1/4 condiment)
3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese, (3/4 lean)
1/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese (1/4 lean)
2 tbsp Rao's Marinara Sauce (1 condiment)
1 tbsp reduced fat Parmesan cheese, grated (1/2 condiment)

Prepare green beans and place in a baking dish. Mix the garlic salt and basil with the ricotta cheese. Spread over green beans. Spread marinara sauce over the ricotta cheese mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes and then broil until cheese is lightly browned. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
