Poor Man's Lasagna

This is the original recipe.. which is great.. I made a few changes which is why I've reposted it here.

Poor Man’s Lasagna

  • 16 oz penne pasta
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 16 oz cottage cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce (24 oz)
  • shredded cheese
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • Johnny's Seasoning Salt
Boil the pasta according to instructions on packaging. Drain the pasta and return it to the pan. While the pasta is still warm, I like to add the cream cheese and cottage cheese to the pan with the pasta. Stir together until well mixed.
Brown the ground meat & chopped onion. I usually add a little Johnny's seasoning . Drain the meat.
Layer a 9×13 pan with pasta mixture, meat, and pasta sauce. Repeat. Add shredded cheddar cheese on top. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
If there are a lot of leftovers, I often freeze them for a later time. You could also freeze it before baking and it would make a great freezer meal.
