This recipe is one of my mom's specialties. It's a hearty main dish that gets requested time and time again. The from-scratch sauce makes each cheesy slice extra flavorful and softer-textured than other versions.—Kim Orr, West Grove, Pennsylvania


1 lb ground beef2 garlic cloves, minced1 ½ cup water15 oz tomato sauce6 oz tomato paste½ tsp to 1 envelope onion soup mix1 tsp dried oregano½ tsp sugar¼ tsp pepper9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained16 oz 4% cottage cheese16 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


  1. In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in the water, tomato sauce and paste, soup mix, oregano, sugar and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Spoon 1/2 cup meat sauce into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with three noodles and a third of the cottage cheese, mozzarella, meat sauce and Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers twice.
