This is such an easy recipe. I served this at a local writer's retreat and they asked me to share it with them. I hope you'll enjoy making it for your family!

15 strips ribbed lasagna
1 lb. bulk sausage
1 pound ground hamburger
48 oz. jar of favorite spaghetti sauce
15 oz. cottage cheese, small curd
2 eggs
12 oz. grated Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In medium skillet, brown sausage and hamburger until fully cooked. Add spaghetti sauce and cook for 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat. In small bowl, mix together cottage cheese and eggs. Pour 1/4 cup water in spaghetti sauce jar and rinse it around. Then pour this water to cover bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. Place three strips of uncooked lasagna, lengthwise. Spread in layers, 1/3 spaghetti sauce, 1/2 cottage cheese mixture, and 1/2 mozzarella cheese. Repeat layering process. For the top, layer noodles, meat and sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove cover and continue baking an additional 20-30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Delicious! Serve with salad and French bread.
