  • 8 Lasagna Noodles
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 small Onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 16 ounces Cottage Cheese
  • 2 1/4 cups Pasta Sauce divided
  • 8 ounces Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • Fresh Basil for garnish optional


  • In a large pot bring water to a boil. 
  • Add lasagna noodles and cook until al dente. 
  • Drain water from the pot and spread noodles out on a flat surface. ( I suggest using a piece of parchment paper).
  • While noodles are cooking brown ground beef in a skillet. Once the beef is mostly browned drain it and return it the the skillet.
  • Add garlic, onions, salt, and 1 cup of the pasta sauce. 
  • Continue cooking for 5-10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • With the noodles laid on a flat surface spread 2 ounces of meat sauce on each noodle. Leave 1/3 of the noodle bare.
  • Top the meat sauce with 2 ounces of cottage cheese. 
  • Starting at the end of the noodle roll it up rolling towards the bare end of the noodle. 
  • Add about 1/4 cup of pasta sauce to the bottom of a casserole dish.
  • Place each lasagna roll up into the casserole dish. 
  • Pour the remaining 1 cup of sauce over the lasagna roll ups. 
  • Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes remove the aluminum foil and continue to bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  • Enjoy!


Feel free to use more sauce and/or cheese on top of the lasagna roll ups!
