How to make it

  1. Heat a nonstick frypan over medium high heat. Add ground chicken and brown, stirring, about 6 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, put tomatoes, tomato paste, 1/2 tablespoon of the parsley, basil, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a food processor and process 1 minute. Stir tomato mixture into ground chicken in pan and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
  3. While it cooks, mix the remaining tablespoon parsley, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, cottage cheese, egg and pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Spread the tomato-chicken mixture in the bottom of a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Place a layer of lasagna noodles over it, followed by a layer of the cottage cheese mixture, followed by a layer of mozzarella and Parmesan. Continue to layer in that order, topping with Parmesan when you finish.
  5. Bake at 375° F for 30 minutes. Let stand 30 minutes and cut into squares.
