Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I seriously love the balance of herbs in this recipe! The sauce was so good that I plan to use it the next time I whip up a batch of spaghetti. We used the whole grain noodles as Cherie suggests and were very happy with the way it turned out. Highly recommended!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown meat and onion together. Drain off grease and put meat in a large sauce pan.
2
Add the remaining ingredients through the water. Then, simmer for approximately 45 minutes.
3
Meanwhile, boil the lasagna noodles. Spray a deep 9x13 inch baking dish with Pam.
4
To assemble the lasagna you will alternate layers of meat, cheese, noodles...3 layers of meat and cheese; 2 layers of noodles. The last layer of cheese will only be the Parmesan cheese. Split the Mozzarella and cottage cheeses between the middle 2 layers of cheese. Use as much of the Parmesan cheese as you prefer.
5
You can make this ahead of time and not bake it until you are ready. When you are ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake until hot and bubbly; approximately 1 hour covered, then 1/2 hour uncovered.
6
It will need to sit for approximately 15 minutes when it comes out of the oven in order to set and make cutting easier.
