MealPlanFamily - Lasagna

Lasagna is one of my favorite things....make it once and eat it for days! It's one of the few leftovers I can actually eat for multiple meals a day and not get sick of it. Everyone has a certain way to make it...I like to make mine with cottage cheese vs. ricotta because I love the way it just spills all over the plate......eating it with garlic bread is a must. Below is the recipe I've been using for years....so simple yet so perfect.

My Lasagne Recipe:

1 package lasagna noodles

1 lb ground beef
8 oz can tomato sauce
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 cup diced onion
1.5 tsp dried basil

Cheese Mixture:
1lb small curd cottage cheese
3 eggs
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
black pepper
1 lb mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and set aside.
  2. Place onions and garlic in a large, deep skillet and cook until soft. Add ground beef and Cock over medium high heat until evenly brown. Stir in tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil and salt. Simmer over medium-low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
  4. In a 9x13 inch baking dish, place 2 layers of noodles on the bottom of dish; layer 1/2 of the cheese mixture, 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 of the sauce; repeat layers.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes; let stand for 10 minutes before cutting; serve.
  6. ENJOY! :)
