Aunt Kimmy's Lasagna

Today's recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law (Grandma King to Liv), but is actually Aunt Kimmy's recipe for lasagna.  This recipe is really easy to assemble - especially if you pre-cooked your beef :) and is really good.  Because it doesn't use ricotta cheese, there is no bitter hint in it & most kids like it too!

Aunt Kimmy's Lasagna

1 lb. of hamburger
1 med-to-large onion (add onion to your family's taste - I always use frozen chopped onion here)
1 jar or can of your favorite spaghetti sauce (the regular size - not the smaller or larger options some brands have)
1 reg. size container of cottage cheese
2 - 8 oz. packages of shredded mozzarella cheese
9 lasagna noodles - already cooked

Brown hamburger & onion & drain well (or use a package of your pre-cooked!).
Add spaghetti sauce and heat through.
Layer in a 9 x 13 pan as follows:

1/2 of the cooked noodles
all of the cottage cheese
1/2 of the hamburger mixture
1 pkg of mozzarella cheese
then rest of the noodles
rest of the hamburger mixture
and the other pkg of mozzarella cheese

Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 min (or until cheese is melted & dish is heated through)

I don't have a picture of this one yet, but this is a family favorite at our house.  It's easily made for less than $10 & makes enough for 2 meals for the 3 of us.
