Leigh’s Lasagna

After a weekend full of busy activities with my girlfriends, Leigh and Amanda, it was a nice change of pace for the three of us to slow down on Sunday to make this delicious lasagna family recipe of Leigh’s, play card games, and catch up on old times.


1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
6 oz can tomato paste
16 oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
Lasagna noodles
1 large pkg mozzarella cheese
12 oz carton cottage cheese


In medium skillet, cook ground beef and garlic salt together until meat is brown.  Drain fat and add tomato paste, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and oregano.  Cover & simmer for 20 minutes.  In an ungreased baking dish and beginning with the meat sauce, alternate layers of meat sauce, noodles, mozzarella cheese, and cottage cheese ending with meat sauce and an extra layer of cheese on top.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 60 minutes.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes before cutting into pieces to serve.

  1. Love your blog! I just recently discovered it and I love every post! 🙂 One question about this recipe, is it a no boil noodle recipe? Looks like it from the pictures but just want to make sure! THANKS!


    • Yes you are correct, you don’t need to boil the lasagna noodles first just later them in the dish with the meat sauce, mozzarella cheese, and cottage cheese! Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog. I truly appreciate it! Hope you enjoy the lasagna!
