Here is a great dinner idea for the night!
This lasagna tastes so good.
Before I tried this recipe for some reason I did not cottage cheese. 
I thought it didn't taste good so wouldn't eat it.
I would make lasagna without it and of course it just tasted 
like some kind of spaghetti. 
Putting cottage cheese in your lasagna is what makes your lasagna.
Try this! It is a great recipe!

6 wide Lasagna Noodles
1 1/2 lbs. Ground Beef
1/2 Onion, chopped
2 cans of Tomato Sauce
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
2 cups of Cottage Cheese
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Parmesan Cheese

Fill a large pot half full of water. Bring to a boil on high heat. Add your noodles and bring it back to a boil. Lower the heat just enough to keep it boiling. Cook for 10 minutes. Drain your noodles and set them aside in cold water. 

Brown your ground beef and onion in a large sauce pan and drain off your excess fat. Mix the tomatoes sauce in with the ground beef. Add your spices and then bring it to a boil, stirring it frequently. Simmer on low for 2-3 hours.

Spread a thin layer of meat sauce in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish that is sprayed with cooking spray. Arrange a layer of noodles over the meat sauce. Spoon 1 cup of cottage cheese over your noodles, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Repeat this ending with another layer of meat sauce. Put mozzarella cheese over the top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
