½ cup white onion (diced)
1 tsp garlic (minced)
3 cup spaghetti sauce
½ cup water
2 cup cottage cheese (crumbled or grated)
2 cup mozzarella cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 whole egg
2 tbsp fresh parsley
6 uncooked lasagna noodles or as required

2. After that cook the beef with half of the spaghetti sauce and water and simmer for about 5 mins.
3. In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, parsley, parmesan, egg and half of the mozzarella cheese and mix well.

Repeat the layer pattern and then cook for 5 hrs. on low settings. When the noodles get soft, spread the remaining mozzarella cheese and cover the lod to melt the cheese.
