1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. oregano (more to taste if you really like Italiano)
1 large can whole tomatoes
1 - 6 oz. can tomato paste
8 oz. cottage or ricotta cheese
3 cups mozzarella cheese (can use the pre-shredded Sargento, Italian Blend
as a substitute)
12 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained (don't completely cook them
since they will cook in the oven ~ just short of al dente)
Parmesan cheese, shredded or ground

Brown ground beef and garlic in skillet. Drain grease and add the oregano, can of tomatoes, tomato paste
and salt to taste. Simmer 20 minutes.
Mix cottage and mozzarella cheeses together in a bowl.

This keeps the noodles from sticking.
Place a layer of noodles in the bottom of the dish. Spoon in alternately meat and cheese mixture to cover.
Continue to alternate noodle layers and spoon in meat and cheese. The top layer should be meat and cheese.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake
for 10 to 15 more minutes. (If you see the noodles begin to turn brown, take it out quickly or the top will be hard.)

Shepherd's Pie

1 lb. ground sirloin
1 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
Worcestershire Sauce, 1 - 2 tsp.
garlic powder
1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup, undiluted
1 can green beans, 14.5 - 15 oz. size, drained
6 - 7 medium potatoes, cooked, seasoned to taste and mashed
Cheddar cheese, about 1/2 cup

Brown the ground sirloin, onion and green pepper. Add Worcestershire Sauce
and a couple of sprinkles of garlic powder.

Put mixture in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.
Spread green beans over mixture.
Spread tomato soup over mixture.
Smooth mashed potatoes on top of casserole.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the potatoes.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 - 40 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Since the mashed potatoes take longer than anything, I like to make them the day before. Just make them
as you ordinarily make mashed potatoes: sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, milk, etc.....and refrigerate them.
If you don't mind the taste of instant potatoes, they would work fine instead of having to make
real mashed potatoes. Just add a salad for a complete meal.
