Classic Lasagna

My Girl Scouts made this last night for our assistant leader, who just had a baby.
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 14.5 oz can stewed tomatos
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 12 oz tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • 12 oz cottage cheese
  • 12 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pound mozzarella cheese
8 oz lasagna noodles (I use the kind you don't have to boil first.)
Brown and drain beef. In saucepan, mix tomatoes, water, tomato paste and spices, add beef and heat until bubbly. Blend cottage, ricotta and Parmesan cheese with beaten eggs.
Put 1/2 cup meat sauce in bottom of greased pan. Layer 1/2 each of noodles, meat sauce, mozzarella and cheese sauce. Repeat layers, top with extra Parmesan if desired. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
