This yields a lot of sauce. What you can do is make a couple of 8x8 pans of lasagna and freeze one without cooking it in the oven. The rest of the sauce you can freeze and use on spaghetti. This usually ends up yielding me about 7-8 dinners.

How to Make Mediterranean Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Begin by browning the ground beef. While beef is browning, cut up all onions in small
    cubes. Drain all fat. Add 2 tbs. of Olive oil, and add onions. Next cut up all peppers. When onions
    are cooked and somewhat light golden, add the peppers. While this is cooking cut up all
    tomatoes. Once the peppers have softened, you can add the tomatoes. Add all spices and
    spaghetti sauce. Cook for a minimum of 2 hours, best if cooked longer 4-6 hours. Once the
    sauce is cooked, you are ready to proceed.
  2. Create bechamel cheese sauce for the top of
    the lasagna. Melt the stick of butter. Add 3 heaping regular tablespoon of flour. Mix well. Start
    adding a little milk, and mix well. Keep on adding milk little by little until the mixture is in a runny
    liquid state but not too runny that will pour like milk (consistency desired such as Alfredo sauce).
    Then add the bag of cheese, and half of parmesan can.
  3. Place a thin layer of sauce at the
    bottom of the lasagna pan. Then add a layer of noodles. Then add a thick layer of sauce. Spread
    2 tsp of cottage and 2 tsp of ricotta cheese on each noodle, then add another layer of noodles.
    Repeat as many times as you would like. When the layers are done, pour warm bechamel
    cheese sauce over last layer of naked noodles. Finish off by sprinkling parmesan cheese over
    this cheese sauce.
