Ingredients

    1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
    1 pound ground Italian sausage
    1 onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons ground oregano
    1 teaspoon ground basil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
    2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
    1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
    1 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
    1 (5-ounce) package grated Parmigianno-Reggiano
    2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    9 oven-ready lasagna noodles
    2 (8-ounce) packages shredded mozzarella

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large saucepan, combine ground chuck, sausage onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat is browned and crumbled; drain.

Return meat to pan and add oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 to 45 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan, parsley, and eggs.

Spoon 1/4 of sauce into bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan. Place 3 uncooked lasagna noodles on top of sauce. Do not overlap noodles. Spread 1/3 of cottage cheese mixture over noodles, top with 1/4 of sauce and 1/3 mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, ending with sauce, reserving 1/3 of mozzarella cheese.

Bake 45 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bake 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
