Another winner from Pioneer Woman. Even if you hate cottage cheese, you'll LOVE this!

I have made this recipe from Pioneer Woman's website and it is great. The recipe that is posted here does not include the 1 lb of mozzarella slices in the ingredients, so watch for that.

Very yummy! I had ricotta that I HAD to use so I put a bit of milk into my cheese to make it wetter.

This is my new favorite lasagna recipe! More meaty and just the right amount of cheesy and less expensive! I accidentally bought the no boil noodles and was worried because when I put it together it was so pretty and a good thick consistency (cuttable looking!). The no boil noodles say to add 1 cup of water to the dish. I added only 1/2 a cup and it came out perfect! About 40 min. on 350 and the noodles were great. I followed pioneer woman's show menu and made the cheesy bread and fried pies. It was a great dinner!!!
