The Family’s Classic Lasagna


One of my favorite things to make would have to be lasagna. Not only is it super yummy, but when I make it there’s always leftovers.

Hope y’all enjoy it as much as I have over the years!



1 can of Petite Diced tomatoes

1 can of Tomato Sauce

1 can of Tomato Paste

1 cup of Rotel Picante

2 pounds of hamburger meat

Large container 20 oz of cottage cheese

2 packages of Italian shredded cheese

Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top

Oven-ready lasagna pasta shells


Preheat your oven to 350.

In a large pan, brown your meat and as you brown it continually drain the grease.

Turn the stove down to around low and add all of your tomato ingredients. Then add the Picante and let your mixture simmer while stirring occasionally.

Spray a 13×9 pan with Pam cooking spray. Line the pan with the oven-ready lasagna shells.

On top of the pasta shells, put a layer of the meat mixture on top. Then scoop out some of the cottage cheese and spread it out on top of the meat mixture and then sprinkle with however much shredded cheese you want.

Continue to layer like this until there’s no more of the meat mixture left. Sprinkle the top of your lasagna with parmesan cheese.

Put the lasagna in the oven uncovered and it should be done when the top starts to brown.
