Total time




  • 15 pieces of lasagna noodles (not the “no-bake” kind)

  • 2 cups of meat sauce (like this or this)

  • 500 ml 2% Cottage Cheese

  • 1 pound of fresh spinach

  • 1 – 2 pounds of grated mozzarella cheese


  • Boil the noodles till they are al dente ( 7 – 9 minutes, but check the packaging)
  • Rinse in cold water and pat dry.
  • Sautee the spinach in butter and rain very well.
  • In a 9×11 glass pan, apply a thin coat of sauce to the bottom
  • Add one layer of noodles (I fit 4 and then use a piece of noodle to cover the gap at the end)
  • Add half the spinach, half the cottage cheese, 1/2 cup meat sauce and 1/4 pound of cheese (try to not add any liquid from the cottage cheese)
  • Add another layer of noodles and the rest of the spinach, cottage cheese, 1/2 cup meat sauce and 1/4 pound of cheese
  • Add another layer of boodles and add the rest of the meat sauce and the last of the grated cheese. (LOTS OF CHEESE!)
  • Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • I just winged it with this recipe, but it was pretty dang good and I would make it the exact same next time.
