The Perfect Lasagna Recipe to Make in Our Apartments for Rent in Gainesville, FL

If you’re looking for a simple and easy lasagna recipe, then we’ve got exactly what you need. Lasagna can be a complicated dish to make, but there are also simple changes you can make to cut down on preparation time and ensure you’re not spending hours waiting for your meal to finish cooking.

For this simple lasagna recipe, you’ll want to gather the following ingredients:

  • 12 whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 16-ounce package cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1½ jars (25 ounces) tomato-basil pasta sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

To make the lasagna, follow these steps:

  • Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Step 2 – Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil, and then add the lasagna noodles and return to a boil. Cook uncovered until the pasta is cooked through, but is still firm. Set the noodles on a plate.
  • Step 3 – In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef with the garlic, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper until the meat is cooked through.
  • Step 4 – In a bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, eggs, and Parmesan cheese.
  • Step 5 – In the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking pan, place four noodles side-by-side, top with a layer of tomato-basil sauce, a layer of the ground beef mixture, and a layer of the cottage cheese mixture.
  • Step 6 – Repeat these layers twice more, ending with a layer of sauce sprinkled with mozzarella cheese.
  • Step 7 – Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake for 10 more minutes, until the cheese has begun to brown.
  • Step 8 – Allow the lasagna to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
