Green Bean Lasagna.
1.5 cups frozen organic green beans (I buy a large bag at Costco).
Dash of garlic salt.
1/4 tsp of dried basil.
3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese.
1/4 cup cottage cheese.
2 tsp. parmesan cheese.
Prepare the green beans and place in an oven safe container. Mix the spices with the cottage cheese.
And spread over the green beans. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Or until cheese is melted. Broil until cheese is slightly browned. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve...
Hmm....that sounds kinda ok but I dont like green beans!..
Interesting. I much prefer green beans to zuchinni. May have to give this one a try...
I think it would be good with broccoli, too.
I am assuming this is one serving. Is this too much cheese for the lean portion?..
The whole recipe yields as a whole lean and green meal!.
I bet broccoli would be awesome!!!..
Oh...and thanks for sharing the recipe! Hubby's out of town, so I think this just might be the perfect meal for me tonight..
This sounds good! Bet it could be adapted with thin sliced cauliflower too!! I will definately try this, 'cause even in maintenance,,i avoid pasta, even whole grain kinds!! Lead to too many cravings!..
Need to add some crushed tomato to this one, yum!..
This looks delicious and I will have to try it since green beans are one of the few vegetables that I enjoy...
I ate this again for supper last night because I enjoyed it so much!!..
Call me crazy, but do you have to steam the green beans before you put them in the pan? This recipe sounds delicious!..
I had it over the weekend - it was delicious and filling. I cooked the green beans first...
This sounds yummy. I wonder if I could substitute low fat or part skim ricotta for the cottage cheese...
I normally boil the green beans first for about 10 minutes...
I guess we can even use canned green beans!..
You probably could Sony. I don't because I have to watch my sodium intake too and canned vegetables always make me swell up...
Ha! I was just thinking the same thing! My DH is a self professed meatatarian! He gets a bit unsettled when there is no meat on his plate Although this would be great as a side for him...
I cannot wait to try this one! Thanks for sharing!..
That sounds wonderful! I miss my pasta dishes, but I can handle the veggie's instead as long as it still has the tomato and cheese. Thanks for posting...
Is cottage cheese a must on this? B/c I really don't like it... :/ otherwise, the recipe sounds pretty good!..
For those that have tried this....do you think it's something that would work as a side dish for Thanksgiving? Like a kind of a green bean casserole?..
Sounds great! I looove green beans and haven't had them in awhile. This sounds great, thanks for sharing...
Sorry for the dumb question, but is 1.5 cups equal to 12oz? i've tried to use the conversion chart someone posted to the boards, but the page won't open for me..
I do not think it would be good for Thanksgiving, as it has more of an Italian taste to it. If you did it with mushrooms added and maybe used poultry seasoning instead of Italian ones, maybe?..
Tried this last night! As soon as I finished it, I called my mom and told her I'd bring a sidedish to Thanksgiving. My husband & kids all tried a bite and LOVED it also. So it's a great dish to make for the family...and you get the benefits of eating it!..
Thanks so much for posting this! I went and bought all the ingredients I'd need today, and can't wait to make it..
I tried this last night and thought it was ok but it definitely needs some more spices, it was a bit bland, plus, it's on the higher side for calories and didn't fill me up as much as my usual protein does. I think with a little bit of tweaking, it can definitely be a great dish....maybe adding a little nutmeg to it would be more appropriate for the holidays. Tonight I'm making Portabella caps stuffed with ground turkey and all sorts of other goodies...YUM!..
