This WAS an easy and quick recipe for your basic lasagna, HOWEVER, I did alter it a bit! :) I added chopped onion and 3 cloves minced fresh garlic to the ground beef while it was browning, along with a teaspoon or so of Paula Deen's House Seasoning (Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt and pepper would work, too). After the beef was browned, I sauteed a small bag of fresh baby spinach in garlic and olive oil and added it to the layers. I also added the House Seasoning to the cottage cheese mixture and used bottled pasta sauce instead of the other. My picky 5 yr old daughter actually asked for "MORE MASAGNA"! It was flavorful and I was able to sneak some green in for my picky eater! Will definately make this again! :)

Thank you for the FAST lasagna recipe! My husband liked it, but the tomato sauce was too strong for me. If I try it again, I'll probably use a Ragu sauce instead. Like others, I added mozzarella to the top of the cottage cheese layers.

I used no-boil lasagna noodles which made it even easier!!! My family loved this lasagna - everyone wanted seconds. I did add some basil & oregano to taste and mozzarella cheese melted on top. I also used twice the amount of tomato sauce. I know - sounds like a lot of changes, but isn't that why we read the reviews and rate the recipes. I get a lot of good ideas from the comments. Hope this helps. Very easy and good recipe!!

I have a really good lasagna recipe that takes a long time to prepare, good for weekends when you don't mind cooking for hours, so I was looking for a good quick and easy recipe for weeknights, and I think this recipe is just as good! It was quick and easy and sooo delicious! The only thing I did differently was to use 1 lb. of hamburger and 1/2 lb. sausage, and I added the tomato sauce mixture to the meat mixture with 1 tsp. of italian seasoning and let it simmer for a few minutes. I also added a little parmesan to the cottage cheese mixture and covered the top with mozzarella. It was GREAT!

It's amazing! I'm constantly asked to make this lasagna! Although, I add a package of frozen spinach to the cottage cheese mixture (it's how my mother used to make it). Also, I only do one big layer of the cottage cheese mixture in the middle and two layers of the tomato mixture above and below. With this recipe I usually have to add more tomato sauce from the jar and top it off with a couple generous handfuls of grated mozzerella cheese

I was looking for a recipe close to Mom's, and so far this is the closest, although we prefer ricotta to cottage cheese. (I made the substitution when I tried this recipe, along with Barilla's no-boil lasanga noodles.) I've also used this as a base for veggie lasagna.

Good Lasagna! Im 17 and this was my first try at it. All I did different was add mushrooms into the sauce and cheese on top of it. Thanks for the great recipe.
