EASY SCHMEAZY LASAGNA
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 box lasagna noodles
16 oz. cottage cheese
1 egg
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups grated Colby jack cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Sauce:
2 lbs. lean ground beef
26 oz. jar favorite spaghetti sauce
14.5 oz can petite cut tomatoes
1 T brown sugar
1 t garlic powder
1 t ground sweet basil
1 t sea salt

Brown ground beef in large pot over medium heat and drain. Add remaining sauce ingredients and simmer.

While the sauce is simmering, prepare the noodles in a large pot according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Mix the cottage cheese in a small bowl with the egg. Toss your grated mozzarella and Colby jack cheese together in a large bowl with your fingers.

Remove the sauce from the stove and put a few spoonfuls into a 9 X 12-inch baking pan, just to cover the bottom to prevent sticking. Place a layer of lasagna noodles (4 or 5) into the pan. Cover with 1/2 of your meat sauce. Carefully, spoon 1/2 of your cottage cheese mixture over the layer of meat sauce, and top with 1/2 of your mozzarella and Colby jack. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan on top, and repeat another layer with your remaining ingredients.

Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy with a tossed green salad, some crusty french bread and a nice bottle of Chianti!
