1-2 lbs. ground beef (depends on how meaty you like it)
1 clove garlic-crushed
1 T. basil
No more than 1 tsp. salt-could use less
16 oz. can stewed tomatoes
2 (6 oz.) cans tomato paste
5 oz. large lasagna noodles (about 8 large noodles)
12 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese.
3 C. cottage cheese
1/2 C. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. parsley flakes
2 beaten eggs
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt (too much for me)

Brown meat and spoon off excess fat. Add the next five ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring as needed to keep from sticking. Cook noodles until tender and rinse. Combine cottage, cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, eggs, pepper and salt.
Place half of noodles in a 9x13 pan. Spread with half the cottage cheese filling, half of the Mozzarella, half the meat sauce. Then repeat the layers. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
