"This is a traditional, fail-safe recipe. I adapted this from Natalie G. Sylvester's version in "The Home-Cooking Cookbook." Serve with a nice green salad and garlic bread."

directions

  • Brown meat and onion in olive oil. Add garlic, tomato paste, water, basil, parsley, salt and pepper, and sugar. Mix well, and simmer at least 20 minutes.
  • Cook lasagna noodles according to directions on the package. Drain.
  • Mix together the ricotta and cottage cheeses. Set aside.
  • Layer the ingredients, in a prepared 9x12 casserole dish, in the following order: noodles, ricotta-cottage cheese mixture, jack cheese, and sauce. Repeat until all noodles, ricotta-cottage cheese mixture, and sauce are used up. Reserve a portion of the jack cheese to sprinkle a thick layer on top. (Don't make the cheese and sauce layers too thick, as your goal is to have enough cheese and sauce to use all of the noodles.)
  • Bake at 350 degrees F about 20 minutes, or until cheese on top is melted and bubbly. Serve hot.
