The best thing about Grandma’s lasagna, other than the obvious yumminess, is that you don’t have to cook the noodles before putting the lasagna together! So, it gives the appearance of something you labored over, when really, you don’t have to work all that hard.
1 carton (8 oz) lasagna noodles (10 noodles)
1 lb. ground beef
1 jar (32 oz) thick spicy spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. cottage cheese (or substitute ricotta)
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
First brown & drain your meat. The recipe calls for 1 lb. of ground beef, but I like to use 2. Add the spaghetti sauce, water, and salt. Boil several minutes.
