  • well, I make my cheese mixture with a med tub of ricotta and a handful of parm with one egg. My sauce is jarred with added ground beef. I layer noodle, cheese, sauce, peperoni, noodle cheese sauce peperoni ,ect... ending with sauce. then top with a five cheese blend. I have never attempted a sauce from scratch. For lasagna I like Classico.

  • I use cottage cheese rather than ricotta, as my family doesn't like ricotta. Also I make my meat sauce from scratch. Would be happy to share if you would like, just let me know.

  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and set aside.
    Place pork and beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Stir in tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, parsley, garlic, oregano, onion, sugar, basil and salt. Simmer over medium-low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
    In a 9x13 inch baking dish, place 2 layers of noodles on the bottom of dish; layer 1/2 of the cheese mixture, 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 of the sauce; repeat layers.
    Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes; let stand for 10 minutes before cutting; serve.
