Serves 9 servings | Prep Time 30 minutes | Cook Time 35 minutes


3/4 lb. lean ground beef (I used one lb. of ground sirloin)
3 cloves garlic, minced (I didn't have any garlic, so I used 2 tsp. of garlic powder)
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1 (26 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
1 large tomato, chopped (I used a can of diced tomatoes)
1 egg
1 (16 oz.) carton Cottage cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained (I used oven-ready noodles; no need to cook and drain)
1 (7 oz.) package shredded Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Brown meat with garlic and oregano in a large saucepan; stir in spaghetti sauce; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat, stir in tomatoes.

Mix egg, Cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese; spread 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce mixture onto bottom of 13 X 9-inch pan; top with layers of 3 noodles, 1 cup Cottage cheese mixture, 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese and 1 cup remaining sauce; repaet layers.

Top with remaining noodles and sauce and cover.

Bake 30 minutes or until heated through; uncover and top with remaining Mozzarella.

Bake uncovered 5 minutes or until Mozzarella melts; let stand 5 minutes.
