Shanty Suppers: Maggy’s Lasagna

I love linky parties, and one where I can get a bunch of new recipes is my kind of party!  I’m going to share a couple recipes with y’all, but be sure to check out the rest at Shanty 2 Chic to get some new dinner ideas of your own! 
Shanty 2 Chic
First up is my mother-in-law’s recipe and one of my husband’s favorite dishes – Lasagna.  I don’t make it that often because it takes awhile, but it is pretty simple and definitely a crowd pleaser.  This is also one that I make to freeze extra or bring to people because it freezes and re-heats really well. 
Maggy’s Lasagna:
  • 2 lbs of ground meat cooked & drained (I cook it with garlic [diced cloves or just garlic salt], some worcestershire sauce and Mrs. Dash)
  • 1 large jar of marinara sauce (or if you’re really talented you could make your own favorite marinara sauce)
  • Lasagna noodles (I buy the no-cook kind to save time)
  • 16 oz container of cottage cheese
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can of sliced black olives (optional – I usually do half & half b/c my husband likes olives but I’m not a fan)
Lightly spray the bottom of a 9x13 dish with Pam.  After the meat has been cooked & drained, add the marinara sauce (and olives if desired) and let simmer for a little while.  {sidenote: I’ve played with the order of layers, and if you’re using the no-cook noodles, I think it turns out best if you use a thin layer of the sauce first} Then line the bottom of the dish with the noodles, spread a layer of the meat sauce, add a layer of the cottage cheese, then sprinkle some of the cheddar and mozzarella.  Repeat this 2 more times (or however long until your pan is full), ending with the cheese on top.  Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes at 350.  Let sit about 10 minutes before serving.

Stay tuned for a delicious dessert bar and sangria recipe to go along with this!
(P.S. - I made these recipe cards.  Feel free to download and save the recipe!  I'd love it if you'd credit me if you re-use them on your blog!)

Hi! I actually edited the blog post to include this, but thought I'd respond as well. I actually made the recipe cards myself in photoshop b/c I was looking for an easy & cute way to store all the recipes I find online!
The font I used is one from Kevin & Amanda (button is in my sidebar) and I think it's called Pea Lissa.
