Homemade Lasagna
Ingredients :
8-9 lasagna noodles
1 lb of lean ground beef
2 cups of water
½ cup of Parmesan cheese (shredded)
¾ cup of Romano cheese (shredded)
1 ½ cups of Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 egg1 chopped onion
1 package of cottage cheese *12 oz
2 cans of tomato paste *6oz
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 Tbsp of dried oregano
2 tsp of garlic powder
2 tsp of salt
Pinch of black pepper
1 Tbsp of white sugar
Directions:

Take a large pan and put in beef, cook in over medium heat until brown. Drain the fat from the meat. Take a second pan and fried onion, until golden brown and glassy texture is visible. Combine both onion and beef and add water, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper, tomato paste. Simmer all the mixed ingredients over medium heat, until completely boiled.

 

 Once you see bubbles on top of the mixture reduce the heat and cook it for another 1.5 hour. Next take a medium size bowl and combine cottage cheese, parmesan crushed tomatoes and egg together. Leave it on the side until ready to spread over the noodles. Cook the pasta for about 10 minutes, and drain it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Use a glass baking dish (9X13) to make our lasagna.

 

First, spread 1 cup of sauce, on the bottom of the dish and cover sauce with 3 noodles. Second, cover noodles with another layer of remaining sauce. Next step would be to top with half of the mozzarella cheese. Lay another layer of noodles and one of sauce over the mozzarella and top that with the cottage cheese mixture. Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining sauce. Cook in the oven in 350 degrees temperature for half an hour.

 

 At the end take out lasagna from the oven top it with the left over mozzarella cheese and bake it for another 15 minutes. Wait at least 10 minutes, and serve lasagna when it cools off a little bit.
