Spicy Lasagna

Recipe by Adessa

I like the vegetables in this Lasagne. Since we never had ricotta cheese around, this recipe uses cottage cheese.

This was a very good Lasagna. I doubled the whole thing to feed a crowd and made a few adjustments to fit our taste. I don't like Italian sausage in my Lasagna so used lean ground beef and used one can of rotel to spice it up some. I also added some basil and lots of garlic as this Lasagna had no garlic in it. This was a real crowd pleaser for sure. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010 :)
