Easy Lasagna II - dottie - 05-20-2012 02:14 AM

1 pound lean ground beef
1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
32 ounces cottage cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried parsley
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
9 lasagna noodles
1/2 cup water
In a large skillet over medium heat brown the ground beef. Drain the grease. Add spaghetti sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese, eggs, half of the grated Parmesan cheese, dried parsley, salt and ground black pepper.
To assemble, in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish evenly spread 3/4 cup of the sauce mixture. Cover with 3 uncooked lasagna noodles, 1 3/4 cup of the cheese mixture, and 1/4 cup sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with 3 noodles, remaining sauce, remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Add 1/2 cup water to the edges of the pan. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F(175 degrees C) oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.[/hide]

Thanks for your two recipee's. These really look good and I think they can help! I have a few questions. Can I remove the ground black pepper because I don't like pepper. Also why all the different types of cheese?

Hopefully you'll make an easy lasagna 3 -Tongue. Alison you can remove the pepper if you want but the flavor will decrease, and a little pepper isn't that bad. Using many types of cheese adds flavor and "character" to the food.

Thank you for the easy lasagna, I'm a big fan of lasagna and this is a nice new way to make it. Agreed Hanny, the pepper will decrease the flavor a lot so I highly recommend using it even if its just a pinch. Best of luck!
