  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add lasagna pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch casserole dish with noodles and spread on 1/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce. Add another layer of noodles and begin alternating layers of cheeses, noodles and sauce, beginning with the cottage cheese. Make sure you leave enough spaghetti sauce to cover the top to prevent hardening of the top layer of noodles. Finish with a sprinkle of Parmesan.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven until cheese is well melted and filling is heated through; about 20 or 25 minutes.

This is a reply to a reviewer below. To keep your lasagne from becoming watery, drain the noodles very well and blot them dry.

I agree that cottage cheese should never, never be used in a lasagna recipe!

This recipe is so simple and easy to make. My husband and I loved it! I suggest adding ground beef with the sauce to make it more meatier, otherwise I followed the rest of the direction. Thanks

Very good, but it turned out watery. Could it be because I used fat free cottage cheese? Any suggestions would be appreciated, because I really liked this.

I did a few things differently. I couldn't bring myself to use American cheese, and I made a mixture of 1/2 ricotta and 1/2 cottage cheese. I also added some ground beef, otherwise I didn't th...

This was yummy, ooey, and gooey. I made a couple of modifications: I used ricotta, not cottage cheese, and just dumped a few dollops here and there. I left out the American cheese entirely......

There should be a law against using cottage cheese in lasagna. I made this last fall and it was really good... with ricotta.

This was great. My son (who is a very picky eater) loves this lasagna. I only made a few changes, I didn't have any spaghetti sauce with meat in it, so I used regular sauce and added meat (1 lb....
