While rifling through my Our Lady of Weight Loss approved recipes, I came across my best ever lasagna recipe and decided to add it post haste to my holiday dinner menu! Not only is it easy to cook, as are all my recipes, but it is also delicious, low in calorie, and your guests will ohhh and ahhh their way through it! Oh, and you can make it ahead of time, which is a major plus – given all that one has to do at the last minute!!!

1 egg, lightly beaten
2 egg whites, lightly beaten

Repeat layers of marinara sauce, pasta and ricotta mixture.
Top with 1/2 the bag of mozzarella, remaining marinara sauce and then finally the last of the mozzarella.
