Good for Your Bones: Lasagna

Lasagna? Good for your bones?

The folks at the "Know My Bones" educational program give us all a reason to enjoy some - their recipe is filled with calcium, an all-important component of bone health.

Recipe for High-Calcium Lasagna*
(Serves 8 or 9), 420 mg calcium

Ingredients

9-12 lasagna noodles
1 can (19 oz.) white or navy beans
8 oz. firm tofu, crumbled
4 cups collard greens (packed), lightly steamed, and finely chopped
2 cans (19 oz. each) pasta sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 1/2 cups shredded soy cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a pot of boiling salted water, cook lasagna noodles 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm; drain. Rinse under cold running water, drain, and set aside.

In a large bowl, mash cooked beans. Add tofu; mix well. Stir in collard greens, pasta sauce, and garlic.

Pour mixture into a 13x9-inch baking dish, just coating the bottom. Layer with noodles, then sauce, then soy cheese. Repeat layering until all ingredients are used up. Reserve soy cheese for top layer. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.

Sounds yummy, don't you think?
