Cooking time: 30 min | Total time: 40 minutes
Preheat oven to 375º F. In a skillet, heat up 2 cups of the marinara sauce until simmering, then add 1 bag frozen Gardein beefless round. Add 1 additional cup of sauce and let simmer for about 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium size bowl, add 24 oz cottage cheese (or vegan option), 1 egg (or vegan option), 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil, and about 1/4 cup of mozzarella (or vegan option) and stir together.
In a 13×9 pan, spread a thin layer of the sauce mix on the bottom of the pan, then lay 4 oven-ready noodles across, then a layer of cottage cheese mix, and sauce mix. Repeat this twice. On the final layer just add the remaining sauce mix (there wont be too much left, just a thin layer). Then top with the remaining layer of cheese.
Cover with foil and cook in the oven for about 25 minutes. Finish 5-10 minutes uncovered.
