I know, I know, I say this every time, but I apologize for not posting that much over the past few months….. but it’s a new year!! I did A LOT of cooking over the holidays and I will be adding numerous recipes as the weeks go on. This is a recipe from The Pioneer Woman and its title is 100% true. Click below to find the recipe at her website and see step by step instructions of how to cook.
* recipe can be found at the Pioneer Woman
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet or saucepan, combine ground beef, sausage, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat until browned. Drain half the fat; less if you’re feeling naughty. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, 2 tablespoons parsley, basil and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix cottage cheese, beaten eggs, grated Parmesan, 2 more tablespoons parsley, and 1 more teaspoon salt. Stir together well. Set aside. Cook lasagna until “al dente” (not overly cooked).
Arrange 4 cooked lasagna noodles in the bottom of a baking pan, overlapping if necessary. Spoon half the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Spread evenly. Cover cottage cheese with a layer of mozzarella cheese. Spoon a little less than half the meat mixture over the top.
Repeat, ending with meat mixture. Sprinkle top generously with extra Parmesan.
Either freeze, refrigerate for up to two days, or bake immediately: 350-degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until top is hot and bubbly.
This Lasagna is SUPER meaty and that is why Will LOVED it. I am not a huge fan of meat so next time I am going to try 1 1/2 lbs of spicy ground turkey instead. I hate cottage cheese, but I honestly did not notice it at all so be brave and try it.
