Ingredients:  
2 lb ground beef ( good stuff 85% lean)
1 lb mild sausage, Italian (links or ground)
1 large onion
2 large cottage cheese (small curd)
1 pkg lasagna noodles (not precooked)
1 large Prego (original)
8 oz mozzarella cheese
24 oz Mixed cheese 6 Italian or Italian Blends
1 xlarge egg
Garlic powder
Seasoned salt
Black pepper
Onion powder

Directions:
Directions:
A. Pan fry your crumbled beef and Italian sausage with the finely minced onion. If you use sausage links, cut them up fine after cooking (using kitchen shears). Combine beef and sausage and mix in a liberal amount of black pepper and garlic powder. Lightly season with salt. B. Boil your noodles using directions on box. When finished, I fish them out and put in pan of tap water so they are cool enough to handle. Pat them dry before placing in the pan or your dish will be "runny."
C. Mix ricotta and one cottage cheese in a large bowl. Season to taste with garlic powder, salt and onion powder. Follow by beating the egg into the cheese mixture. D. Coat lasagna pans with a layer of sauce (the bottom and sides should be coated). Position a layer of noodles in each pan. Spread a layer cheese over the noodles and then a layer of meat over the cheese. Then a layer of sauce. Follow with blended cheeses. Then a layer of noodles. (I free lance with garlic and onion powder throughout the layers) How much you put between noodle layers is different every time you make it. The depth of the pan is a factor as it expands a little when cooking so do not stack higher than pan. The second cottage cheese is to fill in where you need it (but don't forget to season the "backup cheese" before using). E. Cook for 30 minutes at 350 or until it starts bubbling up around the edges. It stays together better if you give it a few minutes from the oven before cutting.
