Mama's Lasagna...

I have half a dozen different lasagna recipes. They range from veggie lasagna, sausage and cheese, name it I've tried quite the variety. Some I like more than others, but there's just something comforting about the way my mom made lasagna. It's probably the nostalgia for me, but I love it! There are no fancy cheeses, herbs, or veggies; just simple ingredients, simple techniques, and delicious flavor.


1 lb. ground beef
1 jar marinara pasta sauce (your favorite brand and flavor)
1 large container cottage cheese
1 C. Parmesan cheese
6 C. mozzarella cheese
9-12 lasagna noodles; cooked aldente and set aside

1. In a large skilled, brown the ground beef. Combine with the marinara sauce.
2. In a mixing bowl combine the cottage cheese with the Parmesan cheese.
3. Layer all the ingredients into a greased 9 x13 pan as follows:

(Spoon a little marinara sauce on the bottom to prevent sticking)

3-4 lasagna noodles
Marinara sauce
Cottage cheese mix
Mozzarella cheese

4. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until hot and bubbly.
