Monday Meals: Easy Lasagna

Okay. So, I forgot to post yesterday...bummer! But here I am with a recipe that is currently in my oven making my house smell wonderful! Enjoy :)

Easy Lasagna


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.

My Substitutions: I don't like cottage cheese, so I used ricotta instead. And I bit less than what was called for, but it seemed to all work out :)

Look for another post tonight for today's post...trying to catch up and stay true to my word!!!

P.S. I stole this recipe from All Recipes- I have used a lot of their recipes before and have never been let down!

P.S.S. Does anyone else post recipes on their blogs?? I'd be interested to use them :)

Love. Krystle
