    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
    2. Meanwhile prepare the sauce. In a large pot or casserole dish, cook beef mince and sausage over medium heat until brown; drain. Stir in tomato puree, tomato paste, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, garlic and 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
    3. In a bowl, stir together cottage cheese, eggs, pepper, Parmesan, 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley and 1/2 teaspoon salt until blended.
    4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. In a 20x30cm baking dish, layer a third each of the lasagne, sliced mozzarella, cottage cheese mixture and meat sauce. Repeat layers twice.
    5. Bake lasagne in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

    It's okay, but COTTAGE CHEESE???? I knew I should have just used the ricotta, but I wanted to try it first as is. Next time--- RICOTTA. Now that it's so available I don't know why anyone would use cottage cheese in lasagne.  -  07 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good. I add one 10oz. box of frozen chopped spinach with the meat mixture for more nutrition. Good way sneak in something green Moms. **Tip** for all Lasagna makers - no need to wash another pot to boil noodles. Soak raw, hard noodles in a large bowl of hot tap or boiling water for 30 min. Then layer as usual. Noodles won't be cooked, but will complete it's cooking in the oven.  -  24 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great tasting lasagne! This recipe requires a little preparation, but it is certainly worth it. I chose to use chicken instead of beef and it wasn't a problem. Using many different cheeses makes the lasagna tick! Perhaps adding a tad more sugar to the tomato mix would be nice, for the tomato paste is quite concentrated. Also, I would recommend putting something (an egg, more cheese, tomato sauce, etc.) on the top layer of lasagna noodles so that they won't be burnt. Mmmmm.  -  08 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
