In an effort to catch my true love's attention I decided to cook him something today. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right.

Today's recipe: Rice Lasagna (yummy).

1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
32 ounces spaghetti sauce
2 large egg whites
16 ounces cottage cheese
8 ounces mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fat-free Parmesan cheese

Cook rice according to package directions. Reserve. Spray a 13"x9" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350*. In a skillet, brown ground beef. Add onions and green peppers; cook until onions and peppers begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce. Beat egg whites slightly in a medium bowl. Stir in cottage cheese and mozzarella. Spread 1/2 of the sauce mixture in the bottom of baking dish. Spoon 1/2 of the rice evenly over sauce; top with 1/2 of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle top with Parmesan. Bake for 50 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
