Not a low calorie lasagna! But authentically delicious and perfect for special occasions. Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat a mini loaf pan
lightly with cooking spray.
Cook sausage, mushrooms, bell pepper & onion in a nonstick skillet. Drain fat. For a smoother lasagna, blend meat mixture in a Magic Bullet
15-30 second until evenly crumbly. Add to a bowl and stir in spaghetti sauce, Parmesan, Tabasco, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning and olives. Sprinkle generously with garlic powder.
Prepare lasagna noodles by "dry frying". Wipe clean meat skillet with paper towels. Add 3 lasagna noodles until you hear a hissing sound, then flip over. Cook a few seconds until noodles begin to shrink. Remove to a plate.
Stir ricotta, egg white and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Season with pepper and garlic powder.
Layer 3 times as follows:
- 1 lasagna noodle
- 1/3 ricotta mixture
- 1/3 meat mixture
- 1/3 mozzarella cheese
Bake 30 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Let sit 5 minutes before cutting in half and serving.
Tip: To make in a slow cooker layer ingredients, cover and cook on MEDIUM for 4 hours.
