Beauty From The Inside Out…Day 13


Today was a good day, but I’m wishing I was more active so far this week. I’ve been taking it easy, and I need to get moving more. I know eating right and exercising go hand in hand, and I know that those two lifestyle changes make for glowing skin, shiny hair, and healthy nails, but sometimes it’s hard to get moving.

I want to share a really good recipe with you! We went meatless today. My youngest has become a pescatarian and I’m doing my best to support her in this new way of eating. Tonight we had Greek Spinach and Feta Lasagna. It sounds a little odd, but it was really good. Here you go!

1 – 15oz. container of fat-free ricotta cheese
1 – 10 oz. package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 cups shredded fat-free mozzarella (the recipe calls for fat-free, I could only find low-fat)
4 oz. reduced fat crumbled feta cheese
8 kalamata olives, chopped (the recipe calls for 8, my daughters love them, so they requested double that next time)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 – 24oz. jar fat-free tomato-basil marinara sauce
9 oven ready no-boil lasagna noodles (If you can’t find these, you can prepare the dish an hour or so before you bake it, giving the sauce time to get into the noodles and make them moist and then they’ll cook thoroughly when you bake it)

Preheat oven to 375, spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Combine ricotta cheese, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, olives, egg, oregano in large bowl and mix well.
Spread one-fourth (about 3/4 cup) of tomato sauce over bottom of baking dish. Top with 3 lasagna noodles. Spread half (about 2 cups)of ricotta mixture over noodles. Spread one-fourth more tomato sauce. Repeat layering once more with 3 noodles, remaining half of ricotta mixture, and one-fourth more tomato sauce. Top with the remaining 3 noodles, the last of the sauce, and 1 cup of mozzarella.
Lightly spray sheet of foil with nonstick spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down, and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes until cheese melts and lasagna is heated through and bubbling.

This serves 8 and is 6 WW points per serving. We loved it! Let me know if you try it, and what you think!
