Lasagna has got to be one of the most popular family go-to meals, but it can be very high in Weight Watchers points. So I made a healthy version of lasagna in Bubble Up form.

This Bubble Up casserole has the traditional ricotta cheese mixture but is lightened up with some fat-free cottage cheese. Due to the recipe calling for light or fat-free cheese, this casserole is high in protein. It’s a well-balanced meal that will give you lean protein, healthy fats, and energizing carbs.

Ingredients you need to make Bubble Up Lasagna: 

  • 1 (7.5 oz) package of biscuit dough (I buy the great value 4 pack in the U.S. If you can’t find them, then use the bigger Pillsbury biscuits and weigh out 7.5oz)
  • 1 lb cooked extra lean ground beef
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 ¼ cup light reduced fat pasta sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Italian herb seasoning mix or a blend of basil and rosemary
  • ½ cup light ricotta cheese
  • 1.5 teaspoon pesto (optional but adds a nice taste)
  • 2 tablespoon liquid egg whites
  • ¾ cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 1.5 tablespoon finely grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup light shredded mozzarella cheese

How to make Bubble Up Lasagna (step by step): 

  1. Cook and drain the extra lean ground beef.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375F, and spray a 9×13 casserole dish with some nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Dice the onion and add it to a bowl with the extra lean cooked ground beef, pasta sauce, and seasoning. Mix it all together really well. 
  4. Cut up the 10 small biscuits into 6 small pieces each (60 pieces in total)
  5. Pour half of the meat mixture into the bottom of the casserole dish.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the ricotta, egg whites, and pesto together. Drop small spoonfuls onto the meat mixture and spread around covering as much as you can.
  7. Evenly place the small biscuit pieces on top of the ricotta.
  8. Add the remaining meat mixture, then top with the cottage cheese. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top.
  9. Bake in the oven uncovered for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese, and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  10. Remove it from the oven, let it cool for a bit, then cut into 6 equal servings.

Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • Use fresh herbs for even more Italian flavor. Add chopped basil on top, or mix in fresh, chopped rosemary, thyme, or parsley. A blend would work well. 
  • You can use any meat that you like. Using fat free ground turkey or fat free ground chicken would lower the points of each serving. 
  • If you’ve got extra points to use up, sprinkle on a bit more cheese!

  1. I want to try this but with out meat. I am vegetarian maybe I could try boca crumbles they are only 1 point per 1/2 cup.

  2. I made this tonight. These were my variations. I used lean turkey and did not have ricotta so I just used cottage cheese along with 2 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese. I mixed a whole egg rather than the egg whites. I added a shredded carrot to add flavor and more bulk and some red pepper flakes.

    Iā€™m sorry but this comes from years of cooking on the fly. I wanted to let people know that can use what they have in the house and flavor the dish to their taste.

    I loved the flavor as did my husband. Along with the green beans I made, this was a satisfying meal.

    1. Hi Lois, thanks for sharing your tips, glad you both enjoyed it. that’s how I started this blog and still cook today, “what’s in my kitchen”?

      1. Could I make this ahead of time and freeze it? If I were to freeze it would you assume I’d use the same Heating and cooking instructions or would they need to be modified? Meal prepping for new baby on the way

        1. Hi Jackie, all the bubble ups freeze well once they have baked.. I’d reheat it in the oven for about the same baking time or you could even use the air fryer to save on time if you have one.. you could probably prepare it and freeze it (before baking) and then bake from frozen, it might take a little longer to bake seeing that it is frozen..
