Mama’s Lasagna

I know there are a trillion and one recipes out there for lasagna…but I found this one a long time ago on the food network website and have adapted it to our liking…It is really quick and easy!!! If you are looking for a new lasagna recipe this one is a must to try… (sorry i don't have individual pictures of each step on this recipe..i only have the final picture and even this picture does not do the lasagna any justice..it kind of looks like a runny ole mess but I promise it is a good ole runny mess:))!!!!)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish.

In a large sauté pan, over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and sauté meat, onion, and garlic until meat is browned, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon. Drain pan of fat and add stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Add some freshly cut basil and oregano. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, then mix in cottage cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan, parsley, salt, pepper, and seasoning salt.

Spread a little of the meat sauce in the bottom of the prepared pan. Lay half the noodles in the bottom of the baking dish, overlapping by 1/2-inch. (these noodles are the BEST!!!!)


Spread half the egg and cottage cheese mixture evenly on top. Sprinkle half the mozzarella and Cheddar evenly over the cottage cheese mixture. Pour half the meat sauce on top. Repeat layering in same order. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan on top. Bake in center of oven 30 to 35 minutes until sauce is bubbling around the edges. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  1. Lasagna is best when it is a gooey mess, in my opinion. Always a great comfort.
