Lasagna Recipe

I tried to attach this recipe as a "comment" to my last post, but for some reason, it doesn't seem to be working. For anyone who would like to know...

Lasagna even a picky toddler might love

6 lasagna noodles
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 small onion, chopped
1-2 large cloves garlic, minced
½ lb ground beef (I use grass-fed)
1 tsp Italian seasoning (I’m guessing on the quantity since I don’t measure)
1 tsp dried basil (ditto on the quantity)
1 cup cottage cheese
1 pound failed homemade mozzarella (may substitute store-bought)
Grated Parmesan cheese to top (real cheese, not the stuff in the green can)

Boil the lasagna noodles for about 10 minutes. As the water is heating, begin making the sauce. Brown beef in a small amount of olive oil along with garlic and onion. When the meat is no longer pink and the onion is tender, add tomato sauce and seasonings. Cover and simmer (the sauce) until the noodles are done.

Layer in a smallish baking dish half the noodles, half the cottage cheese, half the sauce, and half the mozzarella. Repeat. Top with grated Parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes. Serves 4 plus a picky toddler.
