Ingredients

1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese

1 cup low-fat (one-percent) cottage cheese 

1 large egg, lightly beaten 

2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish 

One 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained thoroughly

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 tablespoon olive oil 

12 ounces chicken sausage 

One 32-ounce jar marinara sauce 

8 sheets no-bake lasagna noodles 

One 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, chopped 

1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced 

Fresh basil leaves, torn 

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, cottage cheese, egg, Parmesan and spinach; season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a 12-inch deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, then brown the sausage. Remove 1/3 sausage from the skillet to a paper towel lined plate.
  3. Add 1 cup of the tomato sauce to the skillet and stir to combine with the sausage. On your cutting board, place 2 lasagna noodles side by side and use a spatula to cover them with 1/3 of the ricotta mixture. Using a larger spatula, transfer noodles to the center of the skillet. Scatter 1/3 of the artichokes on top, season with salt and pepper and top with 1/3 of the mozzarella. Add 1 cup of the tomato sauce and the 1/3 of the sausage. Repeat the layers 2 more times. Finish by tearing the remaining mozzarella slices and placing it on top along with the remaining sauce. Cover, adjust the heat, and simmer until the lasagna is cooked through and the cheese is bubbly, about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. After the lasagna has cooked through, place the skillet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown and crispy around the edges.
  5. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and basil before serving.
