Mom's Lasagna

Mom’s Lasagna

Latest polls all show that people are losing sleep over this election, so no matter how you vote here’s some lovin’ from mom’s cookbook: her famous, award-winning lasagna. May it bring you comfort while you watch today’s polls.

1 lb hamburger
Spaghetti Sauce (Prego)
1/2 lb cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 lb Monterey jack cheese
8 oz. cottage cheese
Lasagna noodles (she said the ones in the Green Box)

Preheat oven to 350. Brown hamburger and drain. Add spaghetti sauce and 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Stir until well blended. In 9 X 13 baking pan, put one large spoonful of the sauce on the bottom of the pan to cover bottom. Add one layer of lasagna noodles; Add 1/3 of remaining meat sauce, spoon cottage cheese over meat sauce, top with one layer of combined cheeses; repeat layers until all the sauce is used; Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour, removing the foil, 15 minutes before finished.
Beth’s Note: I don’t recall her using Cheddar Cheese, just 1 pound of Monterey Jack.
Dad’s Note: I don’t recall her using Cheddar either, at least I didn’t buy any when I went to the store. Though I always had sliced cheddar cheese so maybe she used that.
My note: I took the recipe word for word from a letter to me. I have always used half of both cheeses.
