      This was so quick and easy! Everyone loved it. I was surprised that I like the cottage cheese in the recipe. I could only find 16 ounce boxes of lasagna noodles and I used all but 4 of them. I also boiled the noodles because they were not oven-ready. This recipe really fills the pan! Thanks NurseDi!

      This is the recipe I use, after trying many that were too much work or didn't have the right consistency. I do add one more egg to the cheese mixture, 1/2 cup Parmesan instead of 1/4, and often use ricotta instead of cottage cheese. I also omit the onion for picky eaters. I use whole wheat noodles, and don't precook, as baking it covered with plenty of sauce does the trick. My family also likes it if I use less ricotta or cottage cheese and make up for it with more mozzarella. Zucchini shredded into the sauce is good too, just use that much less sauce.
