Another recipe I found in a taste of home magazine years ago...This so yummy! As most of you know...I like to find recipes for inspiration and then switch up for something new, or something I feel would taste even better.
I will type in the original recipe as it is great too, then I will also put what I changed, in parenthesis, so if you want to, you can too. :) I hope I don't confuse anyone to much!
I hope you enjoy!

2 tsp
pepper, divided (i used 1t)
(i add 1t of minced garlic with pepper)
2 1/4 c

carton of cottage cheese
9
lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1 - 16 oz
jar sauerkraut, drained, rinsed and drained well
2 c
monterey jack cheese, shredded and divided
(i added 2 c swiss cheese, shredded with the monterey jack cheese)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a saucepan, melt butter. (add onion and saute until tender) Stir in flour, bouillon (base), onion salt, 1 t pepper (1/2t pepper)(also garlic) until smooth. Gradually stir in milk and broth (I warm my milk and stock in microwave first). Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 min or until thickened. Add sausage (canadian bacon), heat through.
2
Combine eggs, cottage cheese and remaining pepper. Spread one cup of sausage mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Layer with three noodles, a third of the sausage mixture, half of the cottage cheese mixture and half the sauerkraut and 3/4 cup of the monterey jack (+ 3/4c swiss). Repeat layers, top with remaining noodles and sausage mixture (dish will be very full) cover with foil and bake 50 min at 350 until bubbly. Remove cover and sprinkle with remaining jack (and swiss)cheese. Bake another 5 min. or longer until cheese is melted. Let stand 15 min before cutting.
3
I add all cheeses and bake covered 45 min. then remove foil and continue to bake until cheese is a golden brown. (20ish minutes)
