My lasagne is also not anything fancy. It's based on the recipe on any lasagne pasta box, but I embellish it here and there.

Linda's Lasagne

1 pound ground beef
1 jar Best Choice spaghetti sauce, any flavor
1 large container of cottage cheese, small curd, low fat
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic
1 box lasagne noodles

  • Brown the ground beef until cooked through. Drain.
  • Stir spaghetti sauce into ground beef. Let simmer for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the lasagne noodles as directed on the box.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, mozzarella, and spices.
  • Spray a 13x9 casserole dish.
  • Scoop 2-3 large spoonfuls of the meat mixture into the casserole dish. Spread evenly.
  • Scoop 2-3 large spoonfuls of the cheese mixture onto the meat mixture in the dish. Spread evenly.
  • Lay lasagne noodles over the cheese mixture.
  • Repeat layers two more times.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Lasagne hints I've recently learned:
Let the lasagne set a few minutes before serving.
Substitute Italian sausage for the beef, for extra flavor
Skip boiling the noodles and put the casserole in the fridge for at least 8 hours before baking.

How do you spice up your lasagne?

  1. We sometimes add cream cheese to the mozz chz/parmesean chz/eggs/cottage chz mixture. And sometimes add a can of manwich to the spaghetti sauce. It's a little tangy though so I don't add it very often.

    Thanks for your site! :o)
