Servings: 6 or 8 servings
1 pounds ground chuck
1 pound ground Italian Sausage
½ pound ground veal
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon oregano, chopped
3 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
2 (15-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
1 (5-ounce) package grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
9 box lasagna noodles, cooked al dente
2 (8-ounce) packages shredded mozzarella
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large saucepan, combine ground chuck, sausage, veal, onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat is browned and crumbled; drain.
Return meat to pan and add oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 to 45 minutes.
In a small mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan, parsley, and eggs.
Spoon 1/4 of sauce into bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan. Place 3 lasagna noodles on top of sauce. Do not overlap noodles. Spread 1/3 of cottage cheese mixture over noodles, top with 1/4 of sauce and 1/3 mozzarella cheese.
Repeat layers, ending with sauce, reserving 1/3 of mozzarella cheese.
Bake 45 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bake 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
