Lasagna

Lasagna The Peacock Roost

Lasagna is one of my favorite comfort foods!  Pasta and cheese and meat sauce...yum.  This recipe makes a 9x13 pan full of lasagna and it's perfect for those colder nights in the fall & winter!


Ingredients

1 box lasagna noodles
8 oz cottage cheese
3 eggs
Large package of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 C Parmesan
1 lb ground beef
1 large jar of marinara sauce
Garlic powder

Directions

Brown beef, drain and combine with marinara sauce & garlic powder.  Bring to a boil & then simmer.  In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese and 1/2 a large package of shredded mozzarella cheese.  In a 9x13 pan, put a little sauce in the bottom to keep noodles from sticking and then start layering the lasagna.  Noodles, cheese mixture, sauce and then repeat.  I typically do three or four layers and then top the dish with some of the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Bake on 375 for 45 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Enjoy!

  2. I've never heard of making lasagna with cottage cheese before - that sounds like a cool switch-up. We are usually all about the ricotta at our house haha.

  3. Yum! Lasagna used to be one of my favorites but the tomatoes kill me now. BUT my hubby loves it, so I should make it for him sometime! Sounds delicious!

  11. Do you boil the lasagna noodles first in this recipe? Or layer them right out of the box?
