    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Soak matzo sheets in a large bowl of hot water until tender, about 30 seconds. Drain. Combine eggs, cottage cheese and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese in a bowl. Pour 1/2 of a cup of pasta sauce on the bottom of an oblong baking dish. Place 2 matzo sheets over the sauce then pour another layer of sauce over the sheets. Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top then another layer of sauce. Continue layering until all the matzo sheets are used, finishing with a layer of sauce. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the top.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes.


    During Passover, use kosher for Passover matzo sheets.

    This was a very good Passover lasagna with some minor modifications I browned and seasoned a 1 lb. of turkey meat and added that to two jars of sauce. I also seasoned the cheese mixture with basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. It came out more beautiful than a traditional lasagna. I will definitely be making this for future. Thank you for providing a base recipe!  -  20 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Love this recipe. The result was a cheesy, vegetarian dish which everyone enjoyed. I did not have 4 eggs in the house so I used 3/4 cup of egg replacement. Also had only a 16 oz. carton of cottage cheese into which I mixed the leftover ricotta cheese (about 1/2 cup or 4 oz), I had on hand. I also used 7 Matzo sheets instead of 6 to make sure I covered all the layers. I wish I had taken a picture because it looked so good when it came out of the oven. Tasted even better after sitting for a bit.  -  10 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
