I went to start my Stuffed Pasta Shells last night and realized I was all out of any kind of large pasta, besides lasagna. So I decided to make it work with what I had on hand. Now I make this recipe all the time but I don’t really measure anything out so I’ll try my best to give you the recipe!
What you need:
- Lasagna or another stuffable pasta
- Mozzarella cheese
- Cottage Cheese
- Fresh or canned tomatoes or pasta sauce
- Garlic powder
Mix together the mozzarella and cottage cheese. I use about an even mixture so for every cup of cottage cheese I used one cup of grated mozzarella. Add a little salt and garlic powder to taste. Boil the lasagna until al dente.
Spread the cheese mixture onto the cooked noodles.
Roll up the lasagna. Before you place it in the pan put down a layer of tomato sauce/pasta sauce. I use canned tomatoes and I throw them in the blender and add a little salt.
Pour the rest of the tomato sauce on top of the rolls. Bake at 375F until bubbly.
They don’t look like much but these are so yummy! Most definitely one of our favorite meals and they are so simple and easy.
