Easiest Lasagna Ever

Last night was one of those times when dinner plans didn't cross my mind before 4 PM and then I was still in the middle of about five other things and trying to figure out what i was going to feed everyone. So, I turned to the Easiest Lasagna Ever. It's quick to put together and delicious, so it fit the bill. Give it a try on one of these busy evenings!

I'm cooking for 6, so you may need to adjust amounts if your family is smaller (or bigger!)

2 lbs ground beef
1 carton cottage cheese
4 cups shredded mozzarella
oven ready lasagna noodles
2 jars pasta sauce 

Cook beef and mix with 1 jar of pasta sauce and add in any spices you like, we like garlic powder and an Italian spice blend. In a bowl mix cottage cheese and mozzarella. Spread some of the meat sauce over the bottom of a large casserole dish. Layer noodles, about half of the cheese, and then some of the meat sauce. Repeat layers. When you've used up all of the cheese and meat sauce, pour the 2nd jar of pasta sauce over the top and especially around the edges. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes then uncover and bake another 30 minutes. And dinner is done. Easy.
And then maybe go for a nice long walk...I'm pretty sure there were a LOT of calories in that  meal! Someday I plan to be one of those people people with great meal plans every week. I'm working on it! ;)
