This is a popular family favorite for us. We alter the original recipe by reducing the amount of salt; the original calls for 1 1/2 teaspoons in the meat sauce, but it’s way too much.

  • 1 pound sausage, ground beef, or ground turkey
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon whole basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounce can tomatoes or tomato sauce
  • 12 ounce can tomato paste
  • 10 ounces lasagna noodles
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups (24 oz) cottage or ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound mozarella cheese

Brown meat and drain. Add garlic, basil, salt, tomato sauce and paste ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes, or 15 minutes in microwave. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender. Beat eggs, add next 4 ingredients. Layer noodles, egg mixture, meat sauce, and mozarella in 13 x 9 x 2 pan. Bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serves 8-10.
