Lazy Lasagna

I have 2 Lasagna recipes...this one, the cheap and easy one and a 2nd that is not cheap or easy but extra amazing! This recipe is a good throw together meal that freezes really well. This is the one I usually make.

12 oz Lasagna noodles (uncooked)
1/2 tsp dried Oregano (crushed)
1 (15 1/2 oz) jars spaghetti sauce
2 C. cream-style cottage cheese (or Ricotta cheese)
12 oz. Mozzarella sliced or shredded (buy it already shredded to make life easier!)

Add Oregano to sauce. in 2 10x6x2 inch baking dishes, spread 1 C. sauce on bottom of each dish. Then make layers on this order:

Uncooked noodles, sauce, cottage cheese, mozz. cheese & repeat. (*be sure your noodles are fully covered with sauce since it is the hot sauce the ends up cooking the noodles when you bake it.)

For freezing:
cover pans in foil, label & freeze.

To Serve:
thaw completely if frozen. Bake tightly covered @ 350 degrees for 45 min. or until edges are bubbly & center is hot. Take cover off during the last 10 min.
