    Karen67's Note:

    I learned to make lasagna from my mother, and think this recipe is so much better than any other lasagna I've tried. Feel free to add green peppers to the meat sauce if that sounds good to you. The meat sauce gets more flavor as it cooks, so simmer it anywhere from 45 minutes to a couple of hours, but keep the temerature low so you don't reduce the amount by much. I also really recommend using the long rectangular slices of mozzarella cheese (approximately 3x6 inches) rather then shredded cheese, since it is so much easier to spread the meat sauce on the slices.

      I made this for when I had DD and her boyfriend and DS and his girlfriend over for dinner. The only changes I made was using fresh mozzarella and I am sure a lot more than what is listed. This is very similar to my normal recipe except I use real garlic and also garlic salt, which I found the powder gave a strong aroma of garlic but the sauce lacked the garlic flavor, I kept adding more and more powder to it. Also feel this would be hard for a new cook to make due to the lack of measurements for the spices. I really enjoyed the amount of cottage cheese, which is more than I normally use. Next time I would use the fresh garlic with the garlic salt for more flavor!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Holiday Tag Game.

      This is the basic recipe I've used for years. Even tastes better after freezing. I usually double the amount of meat (I prefer ground round). This makes it perfect for meat lovers who are not pasta fans. I prefer to use fresh garlic put through a press. I use drry Italian seasoning plus some oregano.
