Linda's Lasagna

Linda's Lasagna
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 (6 oz) cans tomato paste
1 (14.5 oz) can crushed tomatoes
2 cups water
1 T dried oregano
2 t garlic powder
2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 T sugar
12 oz cottage cheese
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
9 lasagna noodles
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef until brown.  Drain.  In another skillet over medium heat, cook onion until translucent.  Combine beef and onion in a large saucepan with tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, water, oregano, garlic power, salt, pepper and sugar.  Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour.

You can either cook the noodles according to the instructions or put them in a large bowl and cover with lukewarm water and let it sit for 40 minutes.

While sauce is simmering, blend cottage cheese, Parmesan and egg in a blender until smooth.  Set aside.

Spread 1 cup of sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Cover sauce with 3 noodles.  Cover noodles with 1/3 of remaining sauce.  Top with 1/2 the mozzarella.  Place another layer of noodles and one of sauce; top that with the cottage cheese mixture.  Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining sauce. 

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle remaining mozzarella on top and bake 15 minutes more, until golden and bubbly.
This was a meal my mother-in-law made for us.
