Directions

  1. Cook meat in a large skillet over medium-high heat until brown, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon and breaking up the meat. Remove skillet from heat. Place colander over bowl. Spoon meat into colander and let fat drain into bowl. Return meat to skillet. Discard fat.
  2. Spoon 1 cup of Classico(R) Four Cheese pasta sauce in the bottom of a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Stir remaining Classico(R) Four Cheese pasta sauce into meat in skillet. Cook over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Remove meat mixture from heat.
  3. Place 2 uncooked noodles on sauce in bottom of dish. Spread one-third of the meat mixture on top of noodles. Spread 3/4 cup of the cottage cheese over meat. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese over cottage cheese. Add another layer of 2 uncooked noodles, one-third of the meat mixture, the rest of the cottage cheese, and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Layer remaining uncooked noodles, meat mixture, and mozzarella cheese. Finally, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top, if you like.
  4. Cover baking dish with foil. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let stand on a cooling rack with foil cover in place for 15 minutes. Carefully remove foil from dish so steam escapes away from you. Makes 6 servings.

I made this lasagna for supper tonight and it was very good. The only problem I had with it was that it didn't stay together too well when plated for supper. However, the leftovers were much easier to pick up and did not fall apart so i would advise to let it stand about 20 minutes instead of the 10 that the recipe suggests. My entire family enjoyed it very much so I will definitely make it again soon.

I loved this! I added 4 cups of mozzarella to this because I love cheese and exchanged the cottage cheese for ricotta because that's my personal preference. Also I used Hunt's spaghetti sauce because I despise Classico. I may make this again but maybe spend a little more time on the sauce by adding roasted garlic. For a recipe in a pinch, this will do however!
