Mama Mia Lasagna

My mom's recipe for lasagna is the tastiest and easiest I have found. Whenever I make it for others, I get tons of compliments. It is so easy because you don't have to boil the noodles first. This is also nice because it absorbs the extra liquid so your layers stay stacked when serving. Enjoy!

1 lb. ground beef (I usually do half and half beef and sausage!)
1 onion, chopped
1 qt. canned tomatoes (2 - 14.5 oz cans, don't drain)
6 oz tomato paste
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp parsley flakes
1 tsp basil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 large carton cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp oregano
8 oz uncooked lasagna noodles
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown beef (and sausage) with chopped onion. Mix first eight ingredients and simmer a few minutes. Mix cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and oregano, and set aside. Oil 9x13 pan. Layer half the meat mixture, half the noodles, and spread all the cottage cheese over noodles. Then layer remaining noodles, and meat over all. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350. Remove foil and top with shredded mozzarella and bake another 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
