More Italian for Racquel

Paula's Lasagna (One of my very favorite dishes ever!)

2 pkgs schilling spaghetti sauce
3 cans of 15 oz tomato sauce
about 3/4 cup of water
2 lbs lean ground beef
1- 8 oz pkg wide lasagna noodles
2 cups (1 lb) ricotta or cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (I've used the bottled and it tastes good too)
1 Tbs chopped parsley
3 cups (12 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown the ground beef. Add 2 pkgs of spag sauce, 3 cans of tomato sauce, and 3/4 cup of water. Slow cook for 10 mins over the stove. Cook noodles until slightly bendy. Grease 9x13 pan. Then layer sauce/meat mix, layer of noodles, thin layer of cottage cheese (1/2 of container), sprinkle with grated mozzarella. Layer of sauce, noodles, cottage cheese, cheese, sauce, cheese. Sprinkle Parsley and Parmesan. Cover with foil and I would put a cookie sheet underneath the pan because they tend to boil over. Bake @ 375 for one hour.

Tara, thanks for the Italian recipes! Josh has really enjoyed the variety. :o) Oh and I made the BBQ Chicken and Cottage Cheese Potatoes and Josh kept saying "mmmmm" the whole time he was eating. That is a yummy dinner.
