Lasagna a la Bonnie's Mom !

Preheat oven to 180 C (375F)
Mix 2 cups cottage cheese with 1 egg. Add parmesan cheese til the mixture is no longer goopy. (maybe 1 cup or a bit more ... varies everytime I make it !)
Brown 500g (1 lb) mince ( ground beef ) with 2 cloves (I use about 6 cloves ! ) finely chopped garlic and 1 finely chopped onion. Take off heat. Mix with a jar of Ragu ( or any tomato based pasta sauce), a big can of chopped tomatoes, basil, oregano and parsley to taste. Set aside.
Also need ... Shredded mozarella cheese & Instant Lasagna Noodles.
Start with a bit of sauce on the bottom of your baking dish. Not heaps ... just so noddles don't stick.
Then do layers ... three is good, four is better !!
Cottage cheese mixture (just do blops ... don't try to spread flat or you'll run out !)
Last layer should be Noodles, Sauce, Mozzarella.
Bake 35 minutes covered ( or til noodles are tender), remove cover and bake additional 10 minutes.
