    yieldsMakes 6 to 8 servingstime--- difficultyeasy to moderate


    2 cups canned, diced tomatoes
    2 cups tomato sauce
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup onions, diced
    1/2 cup green bell peppers, diced
    2 cloves garlic, diced
    1/4 cup chopped, fresh parsley leaves
    11/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
    11/2 teaspoons The Lady's House Seasoning, recipe follows
    1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
    2 bay leaves
    1 1/2 pounds ground beef

    6 to 9 Long strips lasagna noodles
    12 ounces cottage cheese, mixed with 1 beaten egg and 1/2 cup Parmesan
    1 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
    1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
    2 cups cheddar, grated
    1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese

    1 cup mozzarella, grated


    To make the sauce, in a stockpot, combine the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, onions, peppers, garlic, parsley, seasoning mixtures, sugar and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Crumble the ground beef in a saucepan. Cook until no pink remains, then drain off the fat. Add the ground beef to the stockpot. Simmer for another 20 minutes. While the sauce simmers, cook the pasta according to the package directions (if sauce is too thin, for your taste, you can thicken it up at this time by mixing 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and a 1/4 of a cup of cold water. Bring sauce back to a boil. Stir in cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly). Remove bay leaves.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    To assemble lasagna, place a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a 9 by 13 by 2-inch pan. Layer 1/3 of each, noodles, cottage cheese mixture, Gruyere, Swiss and cheddar cheeses. Pinch off small pieces of cream cheese and dot over other cheeses. Add another layer of sauce. Repeat layering 2 to 3 times ending with sauce. This may be covered and refrigerated at this point. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with mozzarella and continue to bake for another 10 to 15 minutes. Note: If lasagna has been refrigerated, bake for 40 minutes total.

    House Seasoning:
    1 cup salt
    1/4 cup black pepper
    1/4 cup garlic powder

    Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    Yield: 1 1/2 cups
