You Need To Try This

If your family hasn't tried whole grain pasta yet, this is the one to start with. I buy it at Kroger and Wal-mart also sells it. The recipe and directions are on the back of the box, you use the pasta straight out of the box, no need to cook it first! I follow the recipe as it reads except I use cottage cheese in place of the ricotta and ground turkey instead of beef, and add an extra 1/2 cup of water. I add the water because we like our lasagna a little saucier! I double the recipe and make two pans so we can have it a second night or freeze one for later!
Here are the ingredients as listed on the box...
durum whole wheat flour and semolina blend, whole flaxseed mill (adds the heart healthy omega 3's), wheat fiber, thiamin monotrate, niacin, riboflavin, iron, folic acid.
Now go buy some, cook it up and try it, you will like it!

Oooh, I just made lasagna tonight and pre-cooked noodles would have made it so much easier! Thanks for the tip :)
