Layered Lasagna Recipe

You will need:
1 jar spaghetti sauce
12 lasagna noodles
Cottage cheese
1 1/2 to 2 pounds hamburger
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup other shredded cheese blend (such as Colby Jack)

Steps to follow:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown meat in a frying pan using some onion powder and garlic powder for flavor. Meanwhile, cook noodles in water following directions on pasta package. When hamburger is done, drain. Add spaghetti sauce and cottage cheese to drained meat. Grease a 9x13 pan. Put a little meat/sauce mix on bottom of pan (to help prevent sticking) then add a layer of 4 noodles. Now add a layer of meat/sauce. Next add a layer of cheese. Add another layer of 4 noodles. Add another layer of meat/sauce. Now add another layer of cheese. Next add the last layer of 4 noodles. Now add the rest of the meat/sauce. Last but not least, add the rest of the cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees until cooked through and cheese is bubbly.
