  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Now, you're probably thinking yeah everyone says their food is the best, but IN ALL MY LIFE I've never had a lasagna that tasted this good! I'd never lie to my awesome fans! So let's get to cooking :)

    Step 2

    Chop up your garlic cloves, try to get them as fine as possible.

    Step 3

    Do the same for your onion, personally I use a slap chop because as my husband says "I'm a big baby" and it chops it up nice and fine without the crying so that makes me one happy cook!

    Step 4

    Place meat, onion, garlic, 1 tablespoon of parsley, 1 tablespoon of basil, 1 tablespoon of garlic salt and 1 1/2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning on medium to high heat.

    Step 5

    Allow the meat to brown :)!

    Step 6

    Once meat is brown, drain meat.

    Step 7

    Place meat back into the pan, add in your pasta sauce, sugar, tomato paste and salt. Stir the mixture and place on the back burner on low for 30 minutes. This will allow the mixture to thicken.

    Step 8

    PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 325!

    Step 9

    Now it's time for the lasagna noodles! Fill a large pot with water, cover and place on medium to high heat.

    Step 10

    Once boiling, take off the lid and place in your noodles. They should be done within 12-14 minutes but it all depends on the type of noodles.

    Step 11

    While you're waiting you can begin to grate up your parmesan and cheddar cheese, place back into the fridge until ready to use.

    Step 12

    Now let's get your cottage cheese mixture ready, crack one egg into your cottage cheese and stir.

    Step 13

    Add in remaining spices, pepper, parsley, oregano, basil and Italian seasoning. Stir stir STIR :)!

    Step 14

    The meat mixture should be done by this time. The meat should be thicker. How I test it is I scrap my spoon into the mixture if I see that I can make a clear path then it's ready.

    Step 15

    If you cannot make a path or a hole without the juices coming back and filling up the pan you'll need to cook it for a bit longer. You want the mixture thick, not runny. If you have questions ask :D!

    Step 16

    Once your noodles are done simply drain and allow to cool.

    Step 17

    Get a 9X13 baking dish ready, spread one third of the meat mixture down. Try to make it as even as possible :)!

    Step 18

    Next lay down 5 noodles, slightly over lapping.

    Step 19

    Spread 1/2 of the cottage cheese mixture, you can also use ricotta cheese with the same spices but personally I prefer the cottage cheese.

    Step 20

    Then lay down your mozzarella slices. And repeat :)

    Step 21

    Top with your cheddar cheese and parmesan. Oh my gosh!! Making this guide makes me want to go have a piece!

    Step 22

    The mixture should go like this, starting with the bottom: meat, noodles, cottage cheese, mozzarella, meat, noodles, cottage cheese, provolone, meat, noodles and topped with cheddar and parmesan.

    Step 23

    Mmmmm! Yummy :)

    Step 24

    Cover with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes. To help prevent the cheese sticking to the foil, spray a little PAM or cooking spray onto the foil before covering.

    Step 25

    And BAMMMM you're done! Serve this to anyone and I promise they'll be begging for the recipe. It's just too good not to have in your recipe book!!

    Step 26

    Mmmmm! Serve with a green salad or some healthy veggies like me. Thanks for viewing my guide :)!!!
