DIRECTIONS

  • Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.
  • (Sometime I will try it without cooking the noodles first, but I am a bit of a coward.) Meanwhile, saute the ground beef, garlic and onion in a large skillet or saucepan until the beef is done.
  • Add sauce, salt and Italian seasoning and mix well.
  • Simmer on low heat 12 to 15 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine ricotta, cottage cheese, and beaten eggs.
  • Grease a 9x13 or larger baking pan (larger is much better, otherwise you won't have enough room for everything).
  • Arrange a first layer of noodles so the ends hang over the sides of the pan.
  • (The ends will be laid back over the top for the final layer).
  • Then add a layer of the sauce, half of the ricotta mixture, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Add a second alternating layer of pasta, meat sauce, the rest of the ricotta mixture, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Repeat with another layer of pasta, then fold over the ends of the first layer of noodles and top with the rest of the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or till cheese is bubbly.
  • Allow to set for 10 minutes before cutting.
