The Famous Lasagna

One recipe makes a one dish. However, this freezes very well, so if you are making it, you might as well make two.

For each pound of ground beef:

1 tsp. onion flakes
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 can tomato sauce/diced tomatoes (depending on how chunky you like the sauce)
3/4 cup ketchup
1 cup water

8 oz. lasagna noodles
1 small carton cottage cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 can sliced mushrooms, drained

Brown ground beef; drain. Combine the rest of the sauce ingredients, simmer covered for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400.

Boil noodles according to package directions

Line a deep baking dish with noodles, layer ingredients in the following order: noodles, half the carton of cottage cheese, 1/2 the can of mushrooms, half the cheddar cheese, half the meat sauce, half the mozzarella cheese. Top with another layer of all ingredients.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes after removing from oven.
