Mama Hagood’s Classic Lasagna

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb. ground beef- Browned and drained
  • 3 cups (28oz jar)- stir into meat and simmer 10 min.
  • 1 pkg. Lasagna noodles- cooked and drained

Mix together in bowl:

  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 2 cups ricotta
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella chees
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper


Heat oven to 350.  Spread 1/3 cup meat sauce on bottom of a 9×13 pan. Place 4 over lapping noodles over sauce. Dot a ¼ of cheese mixture over pasta. Spread ¾ cup sauce over cheese. Repeat layers three times. Top with remaining sauce and extra mozzarella cheese.

Cover with foil and Bake 45 min or until hot and bubbly.  Remove foil; bake about 10 min. more until browned. Let stand 10 min.

If making ahead:

Prepare as directed but don’t bake.  Cover with plastic wrap, then foil.   Refrigerate up to 24 hours or freeze.  Bake 350 for 1 hour. For a frozen lasagna, bake at 350 for about 2 hours.
