Tasty Tuesday: Lasagna

LasagnaI am sharing my recipe for lasagna for today’s Tasty Tuesday. This is one of my husband’s favorite meals that I make. I know there are many versions of lasagna out there but I wanted to share mine just in case you all have never had it this way before. 
It is relatively easy and SUPER YUMMY!
-Lasagna noodles
-Spaghetti sauce of your choice
-Ground beef
-Small curd cottage cheese
-Mozzarella Cheese and Parmesan cheese

How to:Begin by browning the ground beef.

While the meat is browning, cook noodles as directed on the box.

In a small bowl, combine sauce, cottage cheese, and meat once browned.

Build it:

First, put a thin layer of the sauce combination at the bottom of a 9×13 pan. This will prevent your noodles from sticking.

Then, place noodles on sauce.

Place another layer of sauce over the noodles.

Cover the sauce with a layer of both cheeses. Then repeat process:
Noodles, sauce, cheese.
(I only do two layers of each. I use 6 noodles total.)

Top with rest of cheese. (We like a lot of cheese!)

At this point you can either bake immediately or just cover with foil and place in the fridge.

Bake at 350 for 30 mins.
Let stand 5 mins before serving.
