Betsy's Lasagna
My Mom's Lasagna Author: Betsy Rodiles
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 1 package of mild Italian sausage
  • 1-2 jars of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 carton cottage cheese
  • 2 bags of shredded cheese (mozzarella and cheddar)
  • 1 package lasagna noodles
  • Seasonings: oregano, Italian Seasonings, garlic salt/powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown turkey and sausage. Drain any grease.
  2. Add spaghetti sauce to meat. Mom's notes: "I use traditional, but you could certainly substitute it for another variety. I estimate that I use about 1½ small jars of sauce."
  3. Season meat with seasonings listed above to taste.
  4. In a 9x11 pan layer: noodles, meat sauce, cottage cheese, shredded cheese, repeat. Finish with a layer of shredded cheese on top.
  5. Mom's note: "I use lots of cheese. I usually buy 2 large bags. Sometimes I'll use one Mozzarella and one Colby/Jack, sometimes Cheddar. Use what you like (or like me...what's on sale!)"
  6. Cover with foil. Bake for an hour. And then take off foil, add a little extra cheese on top bake for 15 minutes more. Take out of the oven and let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.
