In a large skillet, brown meat with onion and garlic until tender. Stir in prepared MRC Tomato Basil supplements (dissolved in 2 c. of water); oregano, anise and fennel then simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring often.
Slice zucchini, using a mandolin slicer works great. Mix together cottage cheese, 5 oz. mozzarella cheese, parsley and egg. In a 13x9 baking dish; layer ½ the zucchini slices, cheese mixture, and meat sauce. Repeat with a second layer and bake at 350 F for approx 45 minutes. Remove from oven and top lasagna with diced tomatoes and the remaining 3 oz. of shredded mozzarella cheese, return lasagna to oven to melt the cheese.
