Make-Ahead Lasagna

Main Courses > Lasagna

1 pound Ground Beef
1 jar prepared Spaghetti Sauce
1 carton Cottage Cheese or Ricotta Cheese
1 (about 12-oz.) package shredded Italian Cheese
1 (about 10 1/2-oz.) package uncooked Lasagna Noodles

Brown the ground beef in a heavy frying pan. Drain. Stir together the meat, sauce, and cheeses. Pour some of the sauce mixture into a wide, flat pan. Top with uncooked noodles. Continue layering in this way, ending with sauce. Cover with foil, and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350-F degrees. Bake casserole, covered,
for 45 minutes; then carefully — carefully! — remove
the foil cover, and slide back into the oven until your
lasagna is bubbling and attractively brown around the
edges. Let it stand for several minutes before serving.
