Side note: If you follow this to the tee it will not taste like it did at Supper Club – it will be SOOOOOO much better! Not sure what I did, but I screwed something up that night!
1 lb ground beef
1 clove garlic – minced
1 teaspoon fresh parsley (dried is okay, if need be)
1 teaspoon fresh basil (I would not use dry)
1 16oz canned tomatoes – undrained. I stew my own but have used canned and it turns out pretty good.
2 6oz can tomato paste
1 package lasagna noodles – if you are able, make your own noodles. I tend to take the easy road on this one!
2 large eggs - beaten
½ teaspoon pepper
2 12oz containers cottage cheese
½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 ½ pound freshly sliced mozzarella cheese
Brown ground beef – drain. Add garlic, parsley, basil, tomatoes & paste. Simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce is thick.
Cook lasagna noodles – drain.
Combine eggs, pepper, cottage cheese & parmesan – mix well.
Spread ½ cup meat sauce in greased 13x9 dish.
Layer ½ each of noodles, cottage cheese mixture, mozzarella cheese & meat sauce. Repeat layers. I like to have a nice think layer of mozzarella cheese on top!
Cover and bake @ 350° for 45 minutes. Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese on top is brown & bubbling!
Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
