This was a good lasagna recipe, enjoyed it. I did use ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese, just a personal perference. I liked the addition of black olives. I will add it to my long list od lasagna recipes.

Totally divine! I served this for "Saturday Lunch at the Farm" this past weekend. I personally love the addition of cottage cheese, in fact I have always used this for preparing lasagna. I followed this exactly right down to the black olives, and also was able to use fresh oregano and basil. This really turned out beautifully, nice and bubbly and made wonderful lovely layers. I also used canned tomatoes from the garden and this was so great, we had nothing left but an empty baking dish. Thanks so much, ~Nimz~ will make again, and often!

This is very filling. 12 ounces of noodles weighed out to be 12 lasagna noodles. So I put 4 per layer and spread the meat mixture very thin. I used Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese for the top. Oh yes, I did not use the olive because of my picky DD. Made for *1-2-3 Hit Wonders* game 2007
