Here is another very good recipe that I have been making since my children were still at home. They are both grown now with children of their own. I tried to instill in them the love of good food as they were growing up, just as it had been instilled in me in my grandmothers kitchen. It is a pure and simple love.

1 (10oz.) pkg. lasagna noodles, broken into bite-size pieces
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. Italian sausage
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
12 ozs. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 (12oz.) carton cottage cheese
12 oz. tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes

Cook noodles according to package directions until just tender, drain. Brown ground beef and sausage, drain grease. Place in lightly greased crock-pot. Add all remaining ingredients. Stir to mix thoroughly. Cover, cook on LOW 7 to 9 hours; or on HIGH 3 to 5.
SERVES: 6 to 8
