Fry two pounds ground beef and 1/2 a medium onion in a skillet until brown. Then drain.
To the beef, add garlic salt, sweet basil, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and water. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Cook lasagna noodles al dente. Ten ounces of lasagna noodles is approximately 8-10 noodles.
Rinse noodles in cold water until cooled and set aside.
In a bowl, combine cottage cheese and eggs.
Also add Parmesan cheese, pepper, parsley, and salt.
Mix all ingredients.
Grease a 9x14 pan well. Start by layering noodles on the bottom of the pan, slightly overlapping. The noodles may not be long enough for the pan, so a noodle may need to be cut to fit.
Spoon half the meat mixture on top of the noodles.
Next, add a layer of half the cottage cheese mixture.
Add a layer of half a pound of Parmesan cheese.
Repeat the layering, starting with the noodles. Finish with a half pound of Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Cut into squares, serve, and enjoy.
If you wish to make this a day ahead and put in the refrigerator, let the lasagna warm to room temperature before baking. The dish will be quite dense and takes much longer to bake when cold.
