I've served this satisfying lasagna for years - when our children were small, they preferred it more than a steak dinner! Now my grandchildren request that I bring a pan along when I visit...and, of course, I do. -Barbara McIntosh, Midland, Texas

delicious recipe. Adding pizza toppings would be a good option. Also, instead of starting with the meat mixture on the bottom, I started with the lasagna noodles to hold it together better while cutting. I also did 3 noodles per layer, 3 layers. 4 noodles will not fit in the pan...

Update: I had baked these in two 8X8" dishes and frozen one, and I am wondering if I inadvertently left out the eggs, which would account for why there was so much liquid! Will try again!

Very good. I did think that there was too much liquid in the bottom of the dish (the second time I made it I baked it longer, hoping to reduce the liquid), so next time I think I would add less water.

I altered this recipe slightly and now it taste like, "A pizza in the form of lasagna!" my mother told me!

Big, big hit with everyone! I added a can of drained, chopped Italian-style stewed tomatoesto the sauce and replaced1/2 cup of the water with 1/4 cup red wine and 1/4 cup juices from the stewed tomatoes. I added more spices to the sauce-fresh minced garlic,Emeril's Essence, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and pepper.I added fresh minced parsley and pepper to the cottage cheese mixture. My 6 year old son begged for the leftovers the next day and he NEVER wants leftovers. Great recipe and the pepperoni gives it a good flavor-a keeper!
