Our Favorite Lasagna
based on Pioneer Woman's Best Lasagna Ever

2 packages sliced Mozzarella cheese
1 box oven ready noodles

Set these aside.

2 lbs ground beef
1 tbsp minced garlic

Cook these together until meat is browned. Drain.

1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can Hunts spaghetti sauce
2 - 6oz cans tomato paste 
¼ cup sugar

28oz can diced tomatoes
2 - 6oz cans tomato paste 
1/3 cup spaghetti seasoning
1 tsp salt
¼ cup sugar

Mix thoroughly and simmer uncovered 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a separate bowl mix:
 3 cups of cottage cheese
2 beaten eggs
½ cup Parmesan cheese (canned is fine).

Layer in 9x13 pan a small amount of beef mixture, then a layer of oven ready noodles, a layer of cottage cheese mixtures, slices of mozzarella cheese and then a good layer of the beef mixture again. Repeat layers, ending with beef mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake in oven as noodles package directs. About 5 minutes before done, top with more slices of mozzarella cheese.
Cool 15 minutes to set.

We have also used Pioneer Woman's actual recipe, The Best Lasagna ever , minus the sausage. I like the sausage but my children do not. There's no use in wasting money on it.
