Mom’s Lasagna


(with my modifications)

19oz stewed tomatoes (w italian seasonings)
5.5oz tom paste
1lb ground beef
2 cloves garlic
1/2 lb mozzarella cheese
8 oz cottage cheese or 8-12 oz Ricotta
1 1/2 to 2 tsp oregano (used frozen fresh)
8 oz noodles (cook ahead of time)

Brown beef. Add tomatoes, paste, oregano, and garlic salt to make sauce.

Layer in pan: Beef on bottom, then noodles, then cottage cheese, then mozzarella cheese. (twice if needed)
Sprinkle 2 tsp of parsley on top. Optionally, use cooking spray on dish, then place a layer of noodles before the layer of meat.
Use a 9×13. 8×12 is a touch small for this recipe.
Bake at 350F for 1 hour.
