I had put this up on the old blog and had people ask for it, so I brought it back from the dead. So here ya go:
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tube Jimmy Dean hot sausage
1 jar Bolgonese sauce from Trader Joe’s(you can use any sauce you really like)
1 big tub of cottage cheese(I am not sure on the size but it is the bigger of the 2 in the store)
1/2 package of Italian mix shredded cheese
1 package of frozen chopped spinach(let it thaw) – optional
Barilla no boil lasagna noodles
1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onion and garlic in a sauce pan, then add the sausage. Brown the sausage and drain the fat. Return the meat to the pan and add the jar of sauce. Let simmer for as long as you like.
While the sauce is simmering, mix together the cottage cheese and Italian mix cheese in a mixing bowl. Mix in the egg and salt and pepper to the taste you like. If you would like, mix in the chopped spinach.
In a 9×12 casserole dish, layer sauce, then noodles, then cottage cheese mixture, then mozzarella cheese. Repeat and end with mozzarella on top.
Bake at 375 for about an hour. Then uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes to brown the top with cheese.
