Both Noah and I enjoy to cook, so I can't believe that I have never learned to make a lasagna. Although it takes a bit of time, it is worth it! I made mine in 2 separate dishes so that I could pop one in the freezer! I had to share this delicious recipe! I wish that I had taken a picture of it to show, but I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
2 Jars of Ragu Spaghetti Sauce (Garden Combination is yummy)
1 onion finely chopped
2 lbs. of ground chuck
Brown meat and onion. Drain. Add Ragu and simer for about 20-30 minutes
1 ½ C small curd cottage cheese (I use low-fat)
2 eggs beaten
¾ C Parmesan Cheese
1t salt (I don’t use this much, if any)
½ t Black Pepper
3C Mozzarella Cheese (Do not add to above mixture)
Boil Lasagna Noodles – about 10 (I use wheat or multi grain)
Spray 13X9 Casserole Dish with Pam.
Put first layer of noodles side by side on the bottom of the dish.
Top with 1/3 of cheese mixture, meat/sauce mixture, and sprinkle with Mozzarella Cheese.
Repeat 2 more times. Top off with the remainder of the Mozzarella Cheese.
Bake at 350 for 1 – 1 ½ hours. (covered for 1 hour)
