Cottage Cheese Lasagna

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Top Review by Stephie Biggs

This is my preferred lasagna recipe. I like that it doesn't call for sausage. I usually mix a little sour cream in my cottage cheese. It just gives it a richer taste. I also (sometimes) add a layer of swiss cheese, again adding more depth to the taste. Oh, and I add bell pepper to the onions. Thanks for this recipe!
