I loved this recipe. I did tweak it a little bit. I added lots of garlic (I’m a garlic lover) and I did a lot more cheese!!:) I also added about 2 cups of ricotta and it was very very good! Thank you for this recipe! Very quick and easy to make! Definitely going on the monthly menu in my house!
Thank you for putting this recipe my fiancé wanted me to prepare this his mom used to make it. And I needed a little clarity on the recipe overview he provided. Anyway some of these comments have to stop! Obviously if you could cook you wouldn’t be on here harassing a recipe.
If you don't like the recipe with the ingredients used, then move on. I don't care if you're Italian and would never use cottage cheese or you don't like this being referred to as lasagne - since I' Portuguese it really doesn't matter to me or the many that have complimented this recipe. Thank you to the home cook for submitting this recipe!
I used ricotta and would consider some spinach next time. Like the suggestion below to mix together then add to casserole dish or add in layer by layer. Easy and quick, yummy weeknight meal
Growing up in an Italian family, it was never heard of to use cottage cheese in lasagna, always ricotta. When using anything besides lasagna noodles, the dish here was called baked ziti.......

I loved it but made a lot of changes. I used 1 pound of ground beef and 1/2 pound of ground Italian sausage, used 2 jars of sauce and cooked it for 4 hours. The instead of cottage cheese I used ricotta plus for my cheeses I used fresh sliced mozzarella and Parmesan. I really tweaked the recipe but it came out perfect.
Italians never use cottage cheese! They use ricotta!
This is a wonderful rendition of Lasagna. People who do not like it should move on and stop complaining. My husband hates Lasagna. But he loves this. And IMO, it is much simpler, even my teens can do it. I like to change it up and use Ricotta when I think of it at the store; or a combo of Ricotta and Cottage Cheese. This is a winner.
You could call this Italian pasta bake but you certainly can’t call it lasagna. Why not just use lasagna noodles instead of shells. Take exactly the same amount of time since you already are using fake jarred “sauce”?
