”Homemade lasagna is one of life's best comfort foods. This recipe is one that has the authentic Italian taste your family and friends will love. All seasoning can be increased or lessened to your personal taste and preference. (The fennel seed in my opinion gives a wonderfully authentic taste and some add a pinch of nutmeg to the cottage cheese-if you prefer ricotta cheese this can also be used instead of cottage cheese). I have salt-sensitive members in my family so I buy no-salt tomato sauce as the crushed tomatoes and paste are usually not over-salted (all tomato products are available in no-salt versions if you need to decrease your intake of sodium-the cheeses usually have enough salt as well) I also set the parsley and Parmesan cheese on the table for my family to add that last bit of seasoning before enjoying--DELIZIOSO!! For best results, prepare one day ahead of baking.
