Lasagna Supreme – Family Favorite

This lasagna supreme is one of the handful of recipes I have in my kitchen repertoire that will make The Hubs go weak in the knees. If you are one of those who will only eat traditional lasagna with ricotta cheese, go ahead and give this a try anyway.

When I was in college, my mom gave me an awesome cookbook simply titled, “Favorite Recipes,” which I cherished because it was from her and it was my first cookbook. In that hardback book, I found the base for my current recipe for lasagna supreme but have made a handful of changes over time. For instance, the original recipe calls for the regular lasagna noodles which you boil first. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

My Lasagna Supreme

First, I set my oven for 375 degrees. Then, I brown the ground beef and sausage with the onion and the garlic. I drain the meat mixture.  Next, the meat goes back into the skillet along with the can of diced tomatoes, the tomato paste, and the Italian seasoning. Cover and simmer for about fifteen minutes.

While the meat mixture simmers, I beat three eggs in a medium-size mixing bowl. To that, I add the cottage cheese, the chopped parsley, the grated parmesan cheese, and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix well.

I layer the no-boil lasagna noodles on the bottom of a baking dish. Typically, I can fit four lengthwise and part of another one sideways to fill the extra space at the end of the pan.

I ladle about half of the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles.

Next, I layer half of the meat mixture on top.

Then, half of each cheese goes on top.
Finally, I repeat the layers, ending with cheese.

The dish goes into the oven for about 45-50 minutes. The cheese should be perfectly golden and gooey.
