This version of Lasagna is one that I have made for many years, but really have never had a written recipe.  I thought I would share my old time favorite with you.

Lasagna is a pasta lovers dream!
Recipe type: Main
Yield: 10-12 servings
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 12 lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (25-ounce) jar tomato spaghetti sauce
  • 1 (6.5-ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Small Curd cottage cheese
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper, to taste plus salt for pasta water
Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9 x 13-inch baking dish by greasing the bottom and sides with shortening or non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, fill ⅔ full with cold water and add two big pinches of salt. Bring the water to a full rolling boil and insert the lasagna noodles, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook until just before the noodles are tender; drain and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile in a large skillet, brown the ground beef until no pink remains; drain off fat. Add the spaghetti sauce, onion, garlic, mushrooms, egg, cottage cheese, salt and pepper.
  4. To assemble the lasagna, place four noodles on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Place ⅓ of the spaghetti sauce mixture and spread to completely cover the noodles. Sprinkle with ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers two more times. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted and the lasagna is bubbly.
