If you are going through the hassle of making one lasagna, why not make more and freeze the extras!!
For EACH lasagna you will need:
1 large jar spaghetti sauce (if you want to make homemade sauce, by all means do so!)
1 lb browned ground beef or turkey
1 8 oz box lasagna noodles
24 oz cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1 tsp Parsley
Combine cottage cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, parsley and Parmesan cheese in a bowl.
Place a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 12×15 pan . Take the remaining spaghetti sauce and mix with ground meat.
Next, l layer half the uncooked lasagna noodles followed by half the cheese mixture, followed by half the mozzarella and then half the meat sauce. Repeat layers. Top final layer with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, cover and freeze.
To eat, thaw and cook covered for 45 minutes at 350. Uncover and cook until top is bubbly.
We made three lasagnas all together. Since we used Brown Rice Noodles, our final price was a bit higher coming in at about $9 for each casserole.
