One of my families favorite meals is lasagna. It is the most requested and they never tire of it. As a matter of fact, my very picky ten year old daughter will eat three, sometimes, four helpings of lasagna. So here is our recipe:
1 box oven ready lasagna noodles
1 small jar of spaghetti sauce (we normally use traditional for lasagna)
1 large (24oz) container of small curd cottage cheese
Preheat oven to 350*.
In bowl, mix cottage cheese, 3/4 of shredded parmesan cheese, and 1 tsp oregano together.
Spray 9x13 metal or glass pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Coat bottom of pan with 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce. Top with noodles, then top with cottage cheese mix. Cover with spaghetti sauce. Top with noodles then coat with sauce. Add another layer of noodles then sauce. Add shredded mozzarella then remaining parmesan. Sprinkle with oregano.
Cover with foil. This is a must! I forgot the foil once and the lasagna did not turn out well. Bake for thirty minutes, then remove foil and bake another thirty minutes. Let sit for five minutes before serving.
Serve with a salad and garlic bread for a great dinner! If you have any leftovers and will not eat them the next day, place in freezer safe container and freeze for a quick and easy lunch another day.
(this recipe costs about $12 and serves roughly eight people)
