A quick and easy version of lasagna

Top Review by NcMysteryShopper

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!
