For Christina and Lindsay!

I think everyone has their own perfect vision for lasagna. The following is mine! My female children prefer this without the cottage/ricotta cheese layer....poor misguided souls....

Make a big batch of your favorite spaghetti sauce! When it's done and simmering away boil 9 or 12 lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain.

Layers in a 9x13 pan:

very light amount of sauce on bottom of pan

3 noodles

Sauce to cover each noodle well

Generous amount of mixed cheese (I like cheddar/jack/mozzarella)

3 noodles

Cottage cheese or Ricotta mixture (1lb container of cottage cheese, one lightly beaten egg, 1 tsp itallian seasoning, salt and pepper, 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese mixed together)

3 noodles

Sauce to cover each noodle well


if your pan is deep enough:

Sauce to cover each noodle well

Bake for 30 min at 375

cover with generous amount of cheese and bake an additional 15 to 20 min or until cheese is the way you like it.

LET IT REST! Cover loosely to keep the bugs (husbands) away.... Serve with garlic bread or rolls! YUMMM
