I'm sure we all have a lasagna recipe that we claim is "the best"! But I really like mine! I pretty much tweek and change it a little every time, but here's my recipe!
1 box of lasagna noodles (for an 8x8 pan, you'll just use half the box)
1 large jar Ragu sauce
1 container cottage cheese
1 bag Mozerella cheese
2 lbs beef
Parmesan cheese (the container not a bag of cheese)
1 TBL oregano
1 TBL garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp. sage
*Try substituting 1 lb of beef for sausage! Thats good too!
Boil your noodles, according to the box. Brown your beef in a large skillet and drain the fat when browned. Add your sauce to the beef, then oregano, garlic salt, and sage (add more to taste, if needed).
Drain noodles and run cold water in a strainer to cool off. Put a little bit of sauce in the bottom of an 8x8 pan, then begin layering!
Layer noodles, meat and sauce mixture, small globs of cottage cheese, mozerella cheese, then sprinkle a little of the parmesan cheese. Repeat 3 times.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking another 10 minues.
(dont forget to eat some left over noodles dipped in sauce, while your lasagna is baking! This is my favorite part!)
