Guest Recipe - Susan's Lasagna

Here's another great recipe from my friend, Susan. This lasagna is wonderful. I had no idea it was such a simple recipe! Your family will think you slaved for hours over this dish.
Susan's Lasagna
1 to 1.5 lb ground beef - browned and drained
1 large jar of PREGO Spaghetti sauce (which ever variety you like)
1 lb of cottage cheese (usually I use large curd- I think)
1 package of lasagna noodles (I get the oven ready ones at Wal-Mart - but you can get the regular ones, boil and drain them- then put a little oil on them so they do not stick)
1 large bag of shredded mozzarella cheese, I put lots of cheese in mine.
Mix the ground beef and spaghetti sauce together. I rinse the jar with about a cup of water and add to the spaghetti sauce. If I am using the oven ready I add a little more water.
Use a 9 x 13 casserole dish. I put sauce in the bottom of the pan, then layer noodles, sauce, cottage cheese, and then mozzarella. I usually get about 3 layers. End with sauce and cheese.
Bake at 325 about 30 minutes -- or until bubbly.
This freezes well.

Lasagne certainly is easier when you use a prepared sauce. I make a Bolognese sauce, and ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses mixed together and use the noodles that have to be cooked. I usually add spinach to mine, also. Guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.

WOW - this is really good! I made a big pan and then froze some of the leftovers for lunch.
