This is a variation on a lasagna dish a coworker made for a company potluck. When I was expecting our third son, I often prepared meals and froze them. It was so nice to have a substantial entree like this one to bake. —Colleen Wolfisberg, Everson, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes, cut up
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups 4% cottage cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. In a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, layer 3 noodles, half of the cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and half of the meat sauce. Repeat layers.
