1-1/2 pounds fresh broccoli, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
3/4 cup no sugar spaghetti sauce (Mario Batali)
1 cup mozzarella cheese, freshly grated
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a large saucepan, bring 1-in. of water, broccoli and salt to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and pat dry. In a blender, combine the cottage cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning; cover and process until blended.
Place half of the broccoli in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish; top with half of the cottage cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Spoon spaghetti sauce over the top; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.
