Recipe: Easy Lasagna

Ingredients:

9 lasagna noodles

2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

For Tomato Sauce:
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tbsp oregano

  2. Add the parsley, oregano, garlic powder, brown sugar, salt and black pepper to the tomato sauce.
  3. Cook the lasagna noodles half way through in boiling water.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, 3/4 of the mozzarella cheese, eggs, half of the grated Parmesan cheese and parsley
