Brown meat; drain. Add tomatoes, paste, salt, basil, oregano, garlic powder, and water. Simmer for 15 minutes. Combine cottage cheese, Parmesan, eggs, and parsley; mix well. In large 17x12 inch pan, spread evenly 3 cups of tomato sauce prepared above. Top with a layer of uncooked noodles, 1/2 cottage cheese mixture, 1/2 the mozzarella, 2 more cups tomato sauce, another layer of noodles, remaining cottage cheese, mozzarella, and tomato sauce. Cook in 350 degree F oven covered with foil, shiny side down, for 70-75 minutes. Let stand 10-15 minutes for noodles to finish cooking and to let the cheese set up. This recipe can be cut in half.
