Yields1 Serving
Meat Sauce
 1 ½ lbs Hamburger
 1 Chopped Onion
 12 Chopped Green Pepper
 1 Large Can Tomato Puree, Italian Seasoned
 1 Can Tomato Paste
 Pinch of Sugar
 Basil, Parsley, Oregano, and Garlic to Taste
Other
 1 ½ Box Spaghetti
 2 Sticks Margarine
 4 Eggs
 1 Container Parmesan Cheese
 1 Large Container of Cottage Cheese
 23 cups Mozzarella Cheese
1

In an electric skillet brown hamburger, onions, and green peppers together. Drain grease and add sauces and seasonings, simmer.

2

The pinch of sugar is to get the tartness out (it does make a difference!).

3

Boil spaghetti and drain. Melt and stir the margarine in the spaghetti in a large bowl.

4

Add eggs and stir well.

5

Slowly mix in the whole container of Parmesan so there are no lumps and it gets evenly distributed.

6

Lightly grease only the bottom of a lasagna pan. Pour spaghetti mixture in and shape like a crust up over the edges.

7

Empty cottage cheese as next layer. Pour meat mixture in and if there is any left you can freeze it for next time.

8

Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and cook at 350 degrees until cheese melts and crust is slightly golden, usually about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
