I didn't realize that Friend Judy's Lasagna was so renowned. I was with a group of friends playing canasta and I mentioned that I would be sharing Judy's original recipe for Lasagna on my blog soon and Friend Ellen said, "Oh! Judy makes really good lasagna." Ellen isn't in Tasty Bunch. I wanted to ask Ellen when she had eaten it, but I didn't. I thought that would be too nosey.

It was really delicious. One of those dishes you want a second helping but you know dessert is coming and you need to leave some room for that treat! 


2       lbs. ground beef
2       15 - ounce cans tomato sauce
3       6 - ounce cans tomato paste
3       6 - ounce cans of water
1        tablespoon dried basil
1        tablespoon dried oregano
2       tablespoons dried minced onion
1        tablespoon dried minced garlic
8       oz lasagna (12 pieces)
16     oz mozzarella cheese, grated
1        pint cottage cheese
Parmesan Cheese

Brown the ground beef in a large skillet and drain.

Add the tomato sauce, tomato past, water, basil, oregano, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and simmer on low for a couple of hours.

Cook the lasagna according to package directions.

In a 9 x 13 - inch baking dish, layer the ingredients in this order:

1st layer - sauce
2nd layer - noodles
3rd layer - cottage cheese
4th layer - noodles
5th layer - sauce
6th layer - noodles
7th layer - mozzarella cheese
8th layer - noodles
9th layer - sauce
10th layer - sprinkle with Parmesan cheese

(Judy says you may have some sauce left over.)

Bake for 45 minutes.

Allow to cool 10 minutes before cutting to serve.
