A lasagna recipe which I have been making forever because it's so delicious! A great rainy day... or snowy day recipe!! Adapted from a Ann Lindsay recipe.

Top Review by TexasHurricane

This was a really good veggie lasagna! I cut the recipe by half and used a 8x8 pan (yes, I did have to cut my noodles to make them work!). I also used fresh basil in place of the fresh parsley (personal preference) and I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned because I cannot eat canned tomatoes. Like one of the previous reviewers, the next time I make it, I will make more sauce. And the cottage cheese in place of ricotta is a definite plus to me! Warms up very well.

  2. In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat, cook onion and mushrooms for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring often. Add garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, hot pepper flakes, tomato paste and tomatoes; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add sweet peppers; simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Filling: combine cottage cheese, half of the Parmesan and the oregano; mix well.
