"My husband and I love pizza and lasagna. In this recipe, we have the best of both," notes Vicki Melies of Glenwood, Iowa. "Because we are both watching our weight, I trimmed down the fat so we could still enjoy this favorite dish."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (19 ounces) ready-to-serve tomato soup
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 9 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 4 ounces sliced turkey pepperoni
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, diced
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

Directions

  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. For sauce, in a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, soup, tomato paste, water, onion and seasonings.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup sauce in a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with three noodles and a third of the sauce, then pepperoni. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Top with three noodles and a third of the sauce. Top with mushrooms, red pepper, green onions and beef. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese. Sprinkle with olives.
  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 70-80 minutes or until noodles are tender. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes.
