This is my sister-in-law’s famous lasagna recipe, and the only one that I cook anymore. It’s that good…
1 lb. ground beef
1 clove freshly pressed garlic
1 T parsley
1 T basil
1 t salt
1 can diced tomatoes
2 6-oz cans tomato paste
1 24-oz. container cottage cheese
2 beaten eggs
1 t salt
½ t pepper
2 T parsley
½ c parmesan cheese
1 lb. sliced mozzarella cheese
Lasagna noodles (I use oven-ready noodles so I don’t have to cook them separately.)
Brown the meat; drain. Add next 6 ingredients and summer uncovered 20 minutes until thick, stirring often.
Cook and rinse lasagna noodles if not using the oven-ready kind.
In another bowl combine all ingredients for the cheese mixture.
Line the bottom of an 8×8 pan with lasagna noodles. Layer half the cheese mixture over the noodles, followed by a layer of mozzarella slices, and then half of the meat mixture. Repeat layers.
Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.
I often use two loaf pans (instead of the 8×8) and freeze one for later. 🙂
