****VERY IMPORTANT**** this is a DELICIOUS recipe, please read the directions before making this. and I have really never measured out some things, like the cottage cheese and parm cheese, shredded cheese and marinara sauce. I would suggest building it as you see fit, because not all of it will fit in the pan. I will try to explain below in the actual recipe. I have been told its the best lasanga ever! and kids love it too! adults do not even notice the veggies, but they give it an excellent flavor.
