This is from a cookbook that a local high school sold. I made it in college one night for some friends and, to this day, is my friend Jim’s favorite lassagna. He has requested that I post this for him so he can make it for his wife. Jimbo, I hope it’s as good as you remember it!

 

12 oz. cottage cheese
2 c. shredded mozzarella
2 eggs
1 tsp. onion powder
1/8 t. pepper
1/2 t .dried basil

32 oz. jar of spag. sauce
1/2 c. water
1 3/4 lb. gr. beef
16 oz. uncooked lasagna noodles
