Recipe Ingredients for Lasagna

1 pound ground beef
6 ounces ground pork
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound tomatoes (chopped)
15 oz. tomato sauce
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon basil
3 cups cottage cheese (24 oz)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano leaves
8 oz. lasagna noodles
3/4 pound mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for Lasagna

  1. Cook and stir ground beef, ground pork, onion and garlic in large saucepan or Dutch oven until meat is brown and onion tender. Drain all fat.

  2. Add tomatoes. Stir in tomato sauce, 2 Tablespoons parsley flakes, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and basil. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered 1 hour or until mixture is consistency of spaghetti sauce.

  3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix cottage cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan, 1 Tablespoon parsley flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and oregano. Reserve 1/2 cup meat sauce for thin top layer.

  4. In ungreased baking pan, 13x9x2 inches, layer 1/4 each of noodles, remaining meat sauce, mozzarella and cottage cheese mixture; repeat three times. Spread reserved meat sauce over top; sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. (If desired, lasagna can be covered and refrigerated several hours at this point.)

  5. Bake uncovered 45 minutes. (Allow an additional 10 - 15 minutes if lasagna has been refrigerated.) For easier cutting, let stand 15 minutes after removing from oven.
