Classic Lasagna

I LOVE lasagna! It took me 5 years to find the perfect recipe... and this is it. Can't beat a classic!

1 package no-boil lasagna noodle sheets
1 lb ground beef (or sausage, or a mix of the two)
2 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
1 jar marinara sauce + 1/4 cup water
2 tsp italian seasoning
2 TBS parmesan cheese
3 cups mozzarella cheese

Cook ground beef until no longer pink. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, mix cottage cheese, egg, ground beef, italian seasoning, parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Stir well to combine.
Spoon a small amount of marinara onto the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish. Layer noodles, then cheese  & beef mixture, and then top with a little more marinara. Repeat until your dish is full, or your out of noodles. End with marinara on the very top of the last noodle layer, and top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake according to your pasta directions.

Monthly Menu Planning :: March

Big changes have come to our household! In way of Menu Planning, that is! 
I had been planning our menus weekly for quite awhile now, and, while it was working fine, I would miss a week here, and a week there, until it became only an occasional thing!
I've started planning by the month and it's working out SOO much better! 
Now, I have to admit, things don't always go as planned, things are constantly getting switched around or replaced. Some nights I can't even think about cooking, so Quesadillas and cold cereal it is! But this way, I at least have a good idea of what to shop for. It also ends the oh-my-gosh-what-do-I-make-for-dinner dilemma. 

Here's March's menu! I'll keep you update with a weekly menu that includes the links to recipes!
