Lasagna with broccoli

All I did for this recipe was to exchange the noodles for broccoli.  This was delicious.  Just make your lasagna like normal, taking care to watch the carb count in the tomato sauce that you use.  Instead of layering the lasagna noodles with the meat sauce and cheeses, I just dumped the broccoli, cottage cheese, meat sauce and the mozarella cheese all together and mixed them up.  Then I added more mozarella cheese on top to make a nice crust.  Cook it until the cheese is melted and everything is warmed through at 400 degrees.

My husband liked this better than the pan of lasagna I made for the boys.  It stayed more moist and had a great flavor.  I think you could use cauliflower or any other vegetable you would like.
