The is so easy and delicious. Most of the ingredients I used came from Trader Joes. I love the California Style Friendship cottage cheese, but the Trader Joes one does the trick - just use the full fat one (I think it's 4%.) I also chopped an onion and sauteed it, mixed in the beef to brown, and then added the sauce (Trader Joes marinara.) Sometimes I add a handful of chopped spinach to the cheese mixture. If you use frozen chopped spinach, make sure you defrost it and drain (squeeze it out) really well so that it's as dry as possible.
I leave out the 1/2 cup water in the recipe because I don't drain the beef and with a not so thick sauce, once I put the ingredients together in the Pyrex dish, I could see the liquid off on the side. It came out perfect, so I think the water would have made it too wet.
I just made it last week (without spinach), and my friend's kid (age 4) said it was the best lasagna she's ever had. My children and husband love it as well. Really such a great meal for the whole family and leftovers.
