Save 50 calories and 6 grams of fat, including 4 grams of saturated fat, per serving by preparing with turkey Italian sausage, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
Spraying the foil with cooking spray before using to cover the lasagna helps prevent the foil from sticking to the cheese on top.
Substitute extra-lean ground beef for the sausage and 1 thawed 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach for the peppers. Squeeze spinach to remove excess liquid before adding to cooked ground beef and onions with the spaghetti sauce and oregano.
