    Debber's Note:

    This is THE ONE every bride should have in her recipe box; it is the way to the groom's heart as well as the in-laws! Not soupy or pathetic, but hearty and "come hither!" Plan to bring an empty pan home if you take this to the church potluck!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-10

    Yield:

    13x9 pan

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta and hold in a pot of lukewarm water; set aside.
    2. 2
      Brown the meat, then add sauce, soup, seasonings; let simmer for a few minutes to meld the flavors. Feel free to add some water to keep the sauce "loose" --
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, mix cottage cheese and parmesan cheese; set aside.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350.
    5. 5
      Layer in pan in the following order --
    6. 6
      Three to four noodles, HALF the meat sauce.
    7. 7
      Three to four noodles, half the cottage-parmesan cheese (spread dollops out evenly).
    8. 8
      Three to four noodles, sprinkle two cups of mozzarella cheese.
    9. 9
      Three to four noodles, remaining meat, cottage-parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese.
    10. 10
      Finish with remaining parmesan.
    11. 11
      Pop in the oven for 60 minutes; let stand 10-15 minutes before serving (easier to cut and serve).
    12. 12
      NO COOK NOODLE METHOD: Leave lasagna uncooked; use same number of noodles, just spread them out so they are evenly distributed in their layers. When all layers are in the pan, pour in about 1/2 to 3/4 cup very HOT water around edges. Cover pan TIGHTLY with foil to create a steamy environment. Check the noodles after 1 hr 15 minutes; if soft, remove foil completely (you might want to add a bit extra cheese at this point), pop back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes to get golden brown and bubbly.
    13. 13
      NOTE: use any combination of meat or all of one kind--whatever you like!

      Easy recipe that is quite filling. I used ricotta and a green pepper and mushroom spaghetti sauce. Thank you for posting.

      I thought the lasagna was ok. I am not used to the taste of tomato soup in my lasagna and would probably prefer to do without it. I will say that it was a great consistency.

      I took the reviews to heart and made it for a potluck. It was a hit! I used half hot sausage and half ground round for the meat. As for the size of the pan, most 13x9 pans seem to be 2" high. I found a disposable one that was 2 3/4" high--perfect fit for all the layers with a little room left at the top. Thanks, Debber!
