    RedhairMac's Note:

    Yikes, another lasagna recipe you say? I love all the variations of this Italian classic, but this one is the best I've ever had. I think it's originally from the Taste of Home cookbook series, but I've tweaked it to my family's taste...and hopefully yours too. Note: Allow about 2 hours and 40 minutes from kitchen to table because the sauce needs to simmer for 1 hour and then the lasagna, once assembled, needs to cook for 50-70 minutes and rest for 15 minutes before serving.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet, brown beef and sausage together over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink. Drain well.
    3. 3
      To meat, add tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, sugar, Italian seasoning, capers, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat; simmer uncovered for one hour, stirring occasionally.

    5. 5
      Spray the bottom of a 9"x13" pan with non-stick spray. Spread about 1 cup of the sauce in the bottom of the pan.
    6. 6
      Place 1/3 of the noodles on top of the meat sauce, overlapping as needed to cover all the sauce.
    7. 7
      On top of the noodles, layer the provolone cheese slices, 1/2 of the cottage cheese mixture and about 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
    8. 8
