Menu Monday - Rice Lasagna & Cookies...

I have a few gluten free (naturally) recipes for you today.

First - my Rice Lasagna from over the weekend...
1 lb. gr beef (I use 3/4 lb.)
1 med. onion (chopped)
1/4 c. peppers (chopped)
1 28 oz. spaghetti sauce
2 beaten eggs
2 c. cottage cheese
2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 c. cooked rice
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Cook beef, onion & peppers till brown.  Drain - stir in spaghetti sauce and heat through.
Stir together eggs, cottage cheese and mozz. cheese.
In 9x13 dish - layer 1/2 meat mixture, 1/2 cooked rice, 1/2 cheese mixture.  Repeat.  Top with parmesan cheese.
Bake uncovered 350 degrees approx. 45 min.  Let stand 10 min. before cutting.

And for dessert...
Chocolate Brownie Cookies 
(I call them 'death by chocolate')
These are amazing!
3 c. confectioner's sugar
2/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 t. salt
3 large egg whites
1 T. vanilla extract
2 c. chocolate chips

Mix 1st 5 ingredients and beat well!!   Then add the chips.  Refrigerate dough about 1/2 hour.  Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees 10-14 min.

NOTE:  I added 2 T. cornstarch to this recipe to help cut the sweetness and it was great!
