Lasagna is one of my all-time favorite foods, but it isn’t an easy weeknight meal. My homemade lasagna is usually an all-day process, so I came up with this quick alternative. These lasagna biscuit cups have all the flavor of lasagna without all the work. I used cottage cheese in this dish, but you can substitute ricotta cheese if you aren’t a cottage cheese fan. We both absolutely loved this dish. I could have eaten the whole batch by myself. They were also good reheated for lunch the next day.

Cook meat slowly in skillet. Drain and put back in skillet. Add spaghetti sauce and stir. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together cottage cheese, garlic, basil and egg white.
