    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    Without meaning to brag, this is the best lasagne recipe I've ever tasted. It's perfect if you're trying to figure out what to do with ground venison because the tomato sauce does an incredible job of removing/masking the wild taste, but of course you can use ground beef as well. Even "Oh, I don't eat deer meat" people will love this -- just don't tell them until afterwards! My recipe book says the fennel is optional, but that's your KILLER SECRET INGREDIENT! It's not optional in my opinion!! You could also add a package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) as well.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 lasagna noodles, cooked (or more or less, depending on how much pasta you like)

    Meat Sauce

    Cheese Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook lasagne noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
    2. 2
      For meat sauce: In a large saucepan or skillet, scramble-fry meat, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat (if you're using venison, there likely won't be any -- that's my little plug for venison!).
    3. 3
      Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste and seasonings. Bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    5. 5
      For Cheese Filling: Combine egg, cottage cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and parsley.
    6. 6
      Layer half lasagne noodles in a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Spread with half the meat sauce and then half the cheese filling. Repeat layers.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese on top and additional grated mozzarella, if desired.
    8. 8
      Bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes and let stand 10 minutes before serving.

      This worked great! Husband and I both loved it, and I've been a vegetarian for three years (concerned mostly with slaughter practices). We used ground venison from a friend who hunts. I used ricotta, not cottage cheese, and didn't have fennel. I think this version tasted just as good, if not better, than beef lasagna. Will definitely be making it again!

      This is a nice recipe. I didn't have any fennel and was a bit short on the cottage cheese, I will make again with more c/c and the fennel. Everyone liked it. Thanks for sharing. Oh btw I did use venison.
