  • Meanwhile, cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain the noodles; rinse with cold water. Drain well; set aside.

  • Lightly coat a 2-quart rectangular baking dish with cooking spray. For cheese filling, stir together the egg and ricotta (or cottage) cheese in a small bowl.

  • Layer three noodles in the prepared baking dish. Spread with one-third of the cheese filling. Top with one-third of the sauce and one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers twice. Sprinkle with Parmesan (or Romano).

  • Bake, covered with foil, for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. If desired, sprinkle with basil.
