Grandma's Homemade Lasagna Recipe

My grandmother immigrated from Italy to the United States back in the early 1940's and brought a lot of Italian recipes right along with her. Over the years these recipes have been changed just a tad to bring them into the modern age.

This particular recipe is one that we have been making for over 35 years here in our home and its her homemade lasagna recipe which is absolutely delicious! Over the next few weeks I will share some additional recipes from my grandmother with all of you.

Grandma's Homemade Lasagna Recipe

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons oregano, crushed
10 3/4 oz. can condensed tomato soup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 large box lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pint container cottage cheese
4 cups tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 lb. Mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet brown the ground beef with the chopped onion, minced garlic and crushed oregano until onion is tender the the ground beef is no longer pink. Add the can of tomato soup, water, tomato sauce, salt and ground black pepper. Simmer mixture over low heat for 15 minutes.

In a large rectangular baking dish arrange 3 or more alternate layers of cooked lasagna noodles, cottage cheese, meat sauce and the Mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese on top.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place baking dish into the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. If desired you can sprinkle on additional Parmesan cheese once it has been removed from the oven.
