Creamy Onion Lasagne

Because Ria requested it (and I askeered of what might happen if I don't).

From Taste of Home's Simple and Delicious
Claims to be $1.06 per serving! Gotta love that!

1 lb ground beef
1 26-oz jar roasted garlic Parmesan spaghetti sauce
1 egg
1 8-oz 4% cottage cheese
1 8-oz carton French onion dip
1 25.6-oz jar Italian sausage and garlic spaghetti sauce
12 no-cook lasagne noodles
3 cups (12 oz) shredded (part-skim) mozzarella cheese

1. Cook beef over medium hear until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the roasted garlic Parmesan spaghetti sauce. Combine the egg, cottage cheese, and onion dip.

2. Spread 1 cup Italian sausage and garlic spaghetti into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with four noodles. Layer with half of the cottage cheese mixture, half of the beef mixture and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and mozzarella cheese.

3. Cover and bake at 375ยบ for 50 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.

Variations: I used beef spaghetti sauce instead of Italian sausage sauce, because I don't eat pork. And because I somehow made it home without the mozzarella cheese (although it's checked off on my market order??), I used different cheese, but it still tasted VERY good.

I also might use SLIGHTLY less sauce next time, or just a different 13X9 dish since I had a bit of sauce spill out onto the bottom of my oven.


  1. awesome! Thanks - sounds yummy!

  2. That looks SOOO good. I feel bad, Oscar can;t have milk or cheese or even fake cheese (he is allergic to casein)

  3. Hm, that sounds good. Might have to try that.
