About this recipe: Once you make this lasagne, it will become a family favourite. Lasagne sheets are layered with a meat sauce and cheese mixture, before being baked to perfection.
my family loved this so much they said it was the best lasagne i have ever made, i changed the pork mince for pork sassage meat and added alot more garlic. Fantastic - 05 Dec 2012
I was sceptical using cottage cheese and sorry to say....it really does not belong in an italian dish. Fresh Ricotta cheese is really the best bet or from a super market is still better than cottage cheese. Ricotta cheese has a different flavor than cottage cheese. It is slightly sweeter and not salty like cottage cheese. With the sausage, mozzerella and parmesean you don't need any more salt. One suggestion, instead of sugar in the sauce add 1/4 of a finely chopped carrot to counter act any acidity from the tomato sauce. If you are looking for less fat, they make ricotta in that form too. - 21 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this was so good but not enough sauce. Used Ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese and doubled cheeses ricotta and mozz to make it more gooey. I adjusted according to prev reviews. replace sugar with 2 tsp ground carrot (thanks for the tip) - also replaced pork sausage with mild Italian sausage. I doubled everything but noodles and tripled onions/garlic/parsley/oregano. only used 4 eggs. For added flavor I a whole chopped green pepper. also added the garlic when meat was browning this seems to really release the flavor. Did not use any salt because all the cheeses are salty enough - this was a good move, it turned out perfect. will make this many more times - thanks Craig!! PS - This sause is great on pizza too! This freezes really well too but whenever i freeze dishes with tomato sauce, I find that i need to add just a little bit (small can) of sauce before cooking. just add to sides and it will work it's way down. the little extra can of sauce will help to moisten it up and bring back some of the tomato flavor which seems to go away when frozen. you can freeze whole or cook the lasagna, cool, cut into serving sizes and freeze individual serving - 20 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
