by Cindy Rippe

This is a delicious Lasagna recipe made  with 3 kinds of meat--ground beef, pepperoni, and Italian sausage. It also has 4 different cheeses, making it so ooey-gooey!!!! I normally like to make my sauce from scratch, but I was limited on time, so I just used canned spaghetti sauce, and it was still wonderful!!!

1 lb ground beef

1 lb Italian sausage

1 4 oz. package of pepperoni

2 cans of Hunt's Spaghetti sauce (26.5 oz cans) or you can use your favorite!

1 cup cottage cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

2 eggs, beaten

1 Tablespoon dried chopped parsley

16 oz package of lasagna noodles, cooked and drained (according to package directions)

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I like to shred it myself, because it just tastes better)

1 cup parmesan cheese (reserving 1/4 cup)

Cook until onion is tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce bring to a boil over medium heat, then cover and reduce heat, cooking about 15 minutes.
