  • 1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey!
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 oz. lasagna noodles
  • 1 jar pasta sauce 26-28 oz.
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup low-moisture mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, cook the ground beef until no longer pink. Discard the grease into a can.
  • Sprinkle in the garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt into the ground beef and mix.
  • In a 9x13" deep casserole dish, lay down a single layer of uncooked lasagna noodles.
  • Pour in 1/4 of the pasta jar sauce and spread across the noodles.
  • Add in 1/3 cup of the cottage cheese and spread.
  • Add in 1/3 of the ground beef mixture.
  • Sprinkle in 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of the parmesan.
  • Repeat the same layering (steps 4-8) for two more layers—noodles, sauce, cottage cheese, ground beef, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan.
  • For the last layer, simply add noodles, sauce, the last 1/4 cup of mozzarella and the last 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan.
  • Cover the casserole dish with a piece of aluminum foil and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Remove the aluminum and bake for another 10 minutes (55 minutes total).


Don't eat beef? Sub in a pound of ground turkey instead!
