Lasagna typically takes longer to put together than it does to cook. Prepackaged convenience products, however, make this version easy to prepare. Serve with a tossed green salad, garlic bread and a hearty red wine.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage and Parmesan cheeses in a bowl; set aside. Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over meat mixture; top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup meat mixture, and 1/3 cup Cheddar cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles. Cover and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/3 cup Cheddar cheese, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
