Mama’s Lasagna

You will need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pound lasagna noodles, cooked and drained

In a skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender; drain. In a blender, process the tomatoes until smooth. Stir into beef mixture along with mushrooms, tomato paste and seasonings; simmer 15 minutes.  

In a bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan, cheddar, 1/2 cup mozzarella and eggs. Spread 2 cups meat sauce in the bottom of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Arrange half the noodles over sauce. Spread cheese mixture over noodles. Top with remaining noodles and sauce.   

Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Return to the oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
