Simple Lasagna

I love a good lasagna!! Today being another snowy day I decided to make my famous lasagna and garlic bread. I love when my husband walks through the door and smiles when he sees what I have made for dinner. Today was one of those days! This is a very basic lasagna recipe, but so delicious!!

- 1 lb ground beef
- Montreal Steak Spice and Seasoning Salt to taste
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
- Tub (500g) of 1% cottage cheese
- 1 can of Hunt's® Thick & Rich Spicy Red Pepper & Chilies Premium Pasta Sauce
- 1 cup (at least!) of shredded cheese (Cheddar, Mozzarella or Marble)
- 12 oven ready lasagna noodles
- 1/2 cup water

1. Brown ground beef and remove excess fat
2. Add spices, pepper, onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook for approximately 5 minutes
3. Mix cottage cheese, pasta sauce and beef/vegetables
4. Make 3 layers (in a deep dish) of: 4 lasagna noodles side by side, topped with 1/3 of beef mixture and 1/3 cheese
5. Poor water around edges of dish
6. Cover with foil and bake for 40min at 375 degrees, remove foil and bake for an additional 15min
7. Remove from oven and allow lasagna to sit for 15 minutes before serving
