My son's friend loves to come over for dinner. The last time he came he was asked to choose a dish he wanted to eat. He chose lasagna. This is my recipe.


Homemade meat sauce I used a pound of beef and an extra can of tomato sauce for the lasagna sauce.
1 lb. box of lasagna noodles, cooked al dente
1 large loaf of fresh mozzarella (like the one they sell at Costco), sliced thinly
1 large container of cottage cheese, mix it in a bowl with the egg and parsley)Note: If you prefer to use the traditional ricotta cheese, please do so.
1 egg
1/4 cup of minced fresh parsley

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees while you assemble the lasagna.

In a large baking dish, add a ladle full of sauce to lightly cover the bottom of the baking dish. Add a layer of cooked lasagna noodles. Add a layer of mozzarella cheese slices and dollops of the cottage cheese mixture. Add another ladle-full of sauce and continue the layering until everything has been added. Be sure to end with sauce on top.

Cover with aluminum and bake in the hot oven for an hour.
