MOM’S LASAGNA

So I thought I would start out this little blog of ours with one of my favorite recipes, my moms lasagna!  It’s so simple and easy to put together!  Without further ado…

Mom’s Lasagna!

1 – 24 oz container of cottage cheese, small curd

2 cups of Shredded mozzarella cheese

1 – Jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce

1 pound ground hamburger of your choosing

Lasagna noodles (you will need 6-8), plain old lasagna noodles are just fine

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1.  Fry hamburger, drain and rinse and return to pan.

2.  Add in jar of spaghetti sauce, plus about 1/4 of the spaghetti sauce jars worth of water.  Sometimes I will also add some garlic and/or spices to the mix at this point.

3.  Mix together in a separate bowl the cottage cheese and mozzarella.

4.  Start layering ingredients in pan.  I use my favorite 9×9 Pampered Chef pan most of the time.  Start first with about 1/3 of the meat/sauce mixture in the bottom of your pan.  Then add a layer of lasagna noodles, covering the entire surface of the sauce.  Next, add half the cheese mixture and smooth out.  Then add 1/2 of your remaining sauce/meat mixture, then another layer of noodles, then the remaining cheese mixture and lastly the rest of the sauce/meat mixture.

7.  Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for one hour.  When I pull mine out of the oven, I usually put some more mozarella cheese over the top and allow the whole thing to sit and cool/set for 10-15 minutes before serving.  (Usually enough time to make some hot bread to go with it!)
