Mom's Lasagna

Growing up, this is the lasagna Mom made. When it was our birthday, we could pick whatever meal we wanted for dinner, and this was always the most popular. Like any good lasagna, it's full of cheese, noodles and meat sauce. Yum!!

This lasagna is fantastic served with a green salad and Parmesan Garlic Bread or Parmesan Garlic Bread Sticks.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 (10.75) cans tomato soup
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
12 lasagna noodles
1 (16 oz) carton cottage cheese
1 egg
1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 pound cheddar cheese, shredded

Cook noodles in a large pot of salted water until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Brown beef with onion, garlic and oregano. Add tomatoes, soup and vinegar to the browned beef. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Lightly beat the egg and add it to the cottage cheese. Grease a 9"x13" baking dish and preheat the oven to 350. Place 4 lasagna noodles in the bottom of the baking dish. Top with 1/3 of the meat sauce, 1/3 of the cottage cheese and 1/3 of the cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers 2 more times, ending with cheeses. Bake for 30 minutes.
