Lasagna (with cottage cheese)

1 serving (3 cups)  Frozen beef and cheddar sauce, thawed (see  recipe  here)
1 can tomato paste 5 1 / 2 ounces (156 ml)
1 / 2 tsp. tsp dried oregano
8 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1 cup cottage cheese
1 package sliced mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to  375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix beef gravy and cheddar with tomato paste and oregano. Spread a thin layer of meat sauce in a rectangular dish with a capacity of 2 liters, shallow baking dish.

Arrange in layers half the lasagna, half the remaining sauce, all the cottage cheese and half the mozzarella. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake 35 minutes or until the lasagna is hot.



This was... strange.... but good. I admit : adding cottage cheese to the lasagna was NOT my cup of tea but I have to say that it was pretty good. Still, I'm not sure if I will re-do that recipe or not.

Oh my! I would give this 10 stars if I could. I made this as a side, but I ate all the leftovers as a main dish. I loved loved the texture of this rice. It was so easy to make too.

Ah ! Lemon and chicken... It's like chocolate chip cookies and milk : you cannot have one without the other !
