This recipe is so simple and easy to make. My husband and I loved it! I suggest adding ground beef with the sauce to make it more meatier, otherwise I followed the rest of the direction. Thanks
I agree that cottage cheese should never, never be used in a lasagna recipe!
This is a reply to a reviewer below. To keep your lasagne from becoming watery, drain the noodles very well and blot them dry.
Very good, but it turned out watery. Could it be because I used fat free cottage cheese? Any suggestions would be appreciated, because I really liked this.
I did a few things differently. I couldn't bring myself to use American cheese, and I made a mixture of 1/2 ricotta and 1/2 cottage cheese. I also added some ground beef, otherwise I didn't think it would have enough taste. Rating is because I changed so many things. Thanks for the post.
This was yummy, ooey, and gooey. I made a couple of modifications: I used ricotta, not cottage cheese, and just dumped a few dollops here and there. I left out the American cheese entirely... it's already such a cheesy dish that you won't even miss it. I sprinkled some bottled parm on the top, which fine as a substitute for the fresh. I didn't use meat-flavored sauce, but I threw in some soy crumbled beef substitute to make it a vegetarian dish without seeming like a vegetarian dish!
Also, the composition turned out better in the metal baking pan I used than in the ceramic casserole dish. Not sure why, but it was less watery in the metal pan.
This was great. My son (who is a very picky eater) loves this lasagna. I only made a few changes, I didn't have any spaghetti sauce with meat in it, so I used regular sauce and added meat (1 lb. ground turkey). I also used more of the shredded cheeses than the recipe called for. I will be making this again.
There should be a law against using cottage cheese in lasagna. I made this last fall and it was really good... with ricotta.
