10 uncooked lasagna noodles

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 (14 ½ oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (12 oz) can tomato paste

1 ½ cups sliced fresh mushrooms

¼ cup chopped onion

1 Tbl dried basil

1 ¾ tsp salt, divided

1/8 tsp garlic powder

3 cups 2 % small curd cottage cheese

½ cup egg substitute

½ cup grated Parmesan

1/3 cup minced fresh parsley

½ tsp pepper

2 cups (8 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella



Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile broil chicken six inches from heat until juices run clear; let stand 15 minutes to cool. Shred chicken with two forks. Drain noodles; set aside. In a large skillet, combine the shredded chicken and the next seven ingredients (through garlic powder, but only using ¾ tsp salt). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 to 35 minutes. In a bowl, combine the cottage cheese, egg substitute, Parmesan, parsley and remaining salt and pepper. In a 13 x 9 baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, place half the noodles, overlapping them. Layer with half the cheese mixture, half the chicken mixture and half the mozzarella. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover and bake five minutes longer. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
