Tomato-Basil Lasagna with Prosciutto
This light version is made with low-fat cottage cheese and fat-free cream cheese for just enough creaminess without all the heft. It is healthy and easy. The flavors is fresh and the red pepper gave it a nice kick. Make it a weeknight dinner or so ahead of time and keep it in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
