Delicious Lasagna!

This is my staple for making Lasagna. It always seems to turn out really good and makes for great left overs! (This really isn't that hard to make either. )

- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 onion
- 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1 box lasagna noodles (there are usually about 18 pieces in a box, & I use about 8-9 pieces)
- 2 c Cheddar cheese (I have used the mixed cheese in a bag before and it's fine)
- 2 c. Mozzarella cheese (again, I have used the bagged cheese here)
- 12 oz. cottage cheese

Start boiling a large pot of water (for noodles later). Cook beef with garlic in a large skillet. Drain. Add the onion and cook. Add tomato sauce and tomatoes. Add salt and pepper and oregano. Cool for a minute. By now your noodles should be cooking in the pot of boiling water. When noodles are done, lay out on paper towels to cool. Then, layer in a 9x13 inch pan starting with the sauce, noodles, cheddar, mozzarella and cottage cheese. Repeat once more, which should take up all your ingredients. Bake at 350 until bubbly in center (about 30-45 min). My oven cooks it in 40 min, but I know it could be different for everyone's ovens. Eat your hearts out.

Delicious! I added mushrooms and used the noodles that don't require boiling ahead of time.
