This recipe comes from the kitchen of my father's sister, Mary. It's meant to be essentially a weeknight-type of meal, so it is nothing complicated or elaborate; however, she says it is her favourite lasagna recipe, and I am sharing it here with you:

Quote Aunt Mary's Lasagna

1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
2 24-oz jars of pasta sauce
1 24-ounce container of cottage cheese
2 large eggs
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
12 uncooked lasagna noodles
3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook and crumble beef, onions, garlic and Italian seasonings until the beef is no longer pink. Drain the fat, add the pasta sauce and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs and parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.

Spread 2 cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Layer with 1/3 of the lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the meat sauce, 1/2 (one-half) of the cottage cheese mixture and 1/3 of the Mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with a layer of noodles, meat sauce and Mozzarella cheese.

Bake, covered, in a preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove cover and continue baking 15 minutes or until heated through. Remove from oven and let stand 15 minutes before serving.

It goes without saying that some hot, crusty, buttered garlic bread would this a meal fit for a castle.

The only thing I would do differently would be put the broiler on for a few minutes at the end, in order to brown the cheese; otherwise, I will be making this the next time I make lasagna.

Oh - and, I would almost certainty add more garlic...
