Easy Lasagna

With the HUGE batch of spaghetti sauce I always make a lasagna to freeze. This is a great recipe because you make it with normal lasagna noodles and you don’t have to cook them first! It’s super easy and really yummy!

  • 4 cups of spaghetti sauce (if you don’t use this recipe use a sauce that has meat in it)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 – 12 ounce package of lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups small curd cottage cheese
  • 12 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese

*If you like a really meaty lasagna you could add a layer of browned ground beef or ground sausage. Just note that it may add a little additional cooking time.

Combine sauce, water and salt in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Grease a 9 x 13 pan and layer hot sauce, uncooked lasagna noodles, cottage cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese ending with sauce than garnishing with the parmesan cheese.

To freeze just assemble the lasagna cover tightly with foil then freeze, do not cook this one first. When you are ready to bake it, pull the lasagna out the night before and put in your fridge. Let it thaw all day then bake at 375 for one hour (if it’s not completely thawed it may take more time). Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
