Legal Lasagna

Since I am doing Herbal Magic at the moment, I have been looking over their recipes. Mum and I tried this one Sunday and even though it says it serves four we managed to get several servings from it.

2 cups tomato, diced
1 cup celery, chopped
½ cup green onion, chopped
1 cup green pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
3 cups spinach leaves
1 cup (8 oz.) 1% cottage cheese
10 oz. tofu (medium-firm)*
8 oz. lean ground beef**
¼ cup (2 oz.)shredded mozzarella

*If tofu isn't to your liking, you can replace it with another 8oz of ground beef
**You can also replace the ground beef with ground chicken, though we do suggest adding some seasoning as you brown it.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Brown beef in a skillet and add tomato, celery, onion, and green pepper. Season to taste with garlic, pepper, and cayenne, and let simmer. Wash spinach. Alternate layers of meat sauce, spinach, cottage cheese, and tofu. Top with cheese and bake for 1 hour.
