Spaghetti Lasagna

This is a family favorite!  I am not sure where the recipe came from, but it is definitely worth sharing.
This dish is great reheated...I am not a fan of leftovers, but this Spaghetti Lasagna is an exception! 

Grocery List: 
1/2 -1 Box of Spaghetti Noodles (Use 1/2 box for less noodles, and 1 whole box for more noodles)
1 16 oz. Cottage Cheese
1 lb. Bob Evans or Tennessee Pride Rolled Sausage (Sage Flavor)
1 26 oz. Jar of Spaghetti Sauce (any flavor, I used Tomato and Basil)
1 egg
4 tbsp. Butter (melted)
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 8 oz. Bag of Mozzarella Cheese
Garlic Salt or Regular Salt (optional)
Olive Oil
1.  Cook noodles according to box directions. Add 1 tbsp olive oil into boiling water with noodles.  Add pinch of garlic salt or regular salt if desired into boiling water as well.
  2. While the noodles are cooking, go ahead and brown the sausage in an electric skillet.  Chop the sausage up into tiny pieces. Place sausage on paper towel to drain.  Set aside.
 3.  Drain cooked noodles.  Add one egg, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, and 4 tbsp. melted butter to the noodles.  Stir well.  Place the noodles in a 9 X 13 inch pan. 
 4.  Create a well in the middle of the noodles and spread the 16 oz. cottage cheese.
 5.  Place the drained sausage on the top of the cottage cheese.
 6.  Pour the Spaghetti sauce over the top of the sausage.
 7. At this point, cover the dish with foil and bake in the oven at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, remove foil, spread the mozzarella cheese on top, and bake for 10 more minutes.

 8. Finally, you have the final product-yum!  Serve with a salad, side dish of broccoli, and corn muffins.  Enjoy!
