Posting my lasagna recipe.
1. because it's good
2. I thought i lost it when I lost my cooking program files but found a paper copy and don't want to loose it for real.

I actually double this when I make it

1 lb ground beef (I use Bob Evans Italian roll sausage)
1 can tomato sauce 
2 jars spaghetti sauce
I used my own sauce so don't add these ingredients, will post sauce recipe
 chopped onion to taste
chopped bell pepper to taste  
2 tbsp chopped parsley (to taste)
1 tbsp chopped oregano (to taste)
minced garlic (to taste

1 cup small curd cottage cheese
1 container ricotta cheese 
1 egg
mozzarella cheese - shredded to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

combine parsley, ricotta, cottage cheese, oregano and egg

preheat oven to 350ºF

I do not fully cook the pasta, I just boil it till it's a little bit soft but still 

In pan coat bottom with sauce
layer with pasta, ricotta mix than mozzarella (save some mozzarella for end)
repeat layers ending with sauce.

cover and bake about 35 minutes

uncover and top with remainder of the mozzarella and Parmesan and return to oven uncovered for another 10 minutes.

For my spaghetti sauce I brown 1 lb roll Bob Evans Italian sausage I add the onions and bell pepper with the sausage. I combine that all into a pot with 1 28oz can tomato sauce and 1 14.5 oz can Italian style diced tomatoes. Add in what ever you like to sauce (mushrooms and such). I also add about 1 tbs honey (or brown sugar).

simmer down to desired consistency.
