Mem's Lasagna

Mem’s lasagna

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.
