The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
The Muellers were German, not Italian, but Lois Elaine wasn't stuck in a rut. She tried all kinds of recipes, and a family favorite was her Lasagna. She actually got this recipe from her sister, Clarice. Today we are featuring Lois Elaine's (and Clarice's) Lasagna recipe.....
Lois Elaine's Lasagna:
1 1/2 pound ground beef
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato soup
1/2 package lasagna noodles
1 pound (large container) large curd cottage cheese
mozzarella cheese (1 package)
Brown the beef and add the other sauce ingredients plus a little water. Let simmer while you are preparing the other ingredients.
Cook and drain the noodles. In a small bowl, mix cottage cheese, egg and parsley flakes.
Lay it all out in a large cake pan. Start with a layer of 1/3 of the sauce, 1/3 of the noodles, 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese, 1/3 of the cottage cheese mixture and a little parmesan cheese. Do this until the ingredients are gone, but leave enough sauce to end with it.
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 or 1 1/2 hours, until everything is nice and bubbly.
