Home Economics Cookbook Lasagna

In high school our home economics class put out a cookbook of our mothers' recipes. I got this from there and have been using it ever since. I haven't seen this recipe on this site, so wanted to share.




  1. Brown your 2 # ground beef crumbling it up as cooking. Drain and add back to pan.
  2. Add your 3 cans of undrained diced tomatoes, sometimes I use 4 cans, you will decide which thickness you prefer after making this dish.
  3. Add the 2 packages of dry spaghetti sauce mix and stir really good. I used Lawry's, but you can use your favorite brand. Simmer on stove for 20 minutes. Checking every so often and stirring.
  4. Boil your lasagna noodles while you are simmering your sauce . Drain, rinse with cool water so you can touch.
  5. Begin to layer your casserole. I add just a touch of sauce in the bottom of a deep 9 x 13 pan. Then I add half the noodles. Here is where you may like to change. We like lots of noodles in ours, you can add less here if you wish. Then add half the meat mixture. Then add in dollops, half the container of cottage cheese uniform on casserole. Then add half the shredded mozzarella. Do again ending with the full cup of grated Parmesan over the top.

  7. Put in a 350 degree F oven uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes until bubbly and the cheese is browning.
  8. Let sit for about 5 minutes and then cut in squares and serve.

Very good recipe. I tried it. Sometimes the cottage chees is a bit runnny and takes a little bit more cooking to set. I have found that if I freeze the cottage cheese and then thaw before using it becomes more solid and easier to use.
