Lasagna with a twist!

This is a unique version of lasagna that is super delish! However, if you do not like Alfredo, or Alfredo and marinara mixed, you might not enjoy this as much. We LOVE it!

14 Lasagna noodles
1 (15oz) container of cottage cheese
1 (10oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
2 eggs
1 pound sausage or ground beef, cooked and drained
1 (26oz) jar of favorite marinara pasta sauce
1 (16oz) jar Alfredo pasta sauce
Chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions. Combine cottage cheese, spinach, mozzarella cheese, 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and eggs. Mix well. In a 9x15 pan (the deeper the better) spread 1 cup marinara sauce over bottom. Mix remaining marinara sauce and cooked meat together in a separate bowl. Layer 4-5 lasagna noodles over the sauce. Top with half of the cheese mixture and 1 cup of meat/marinara sauce. Layer 4-5 more lasagna noodles, remaining cheese mixture and remaining meat/marinara sauce. Top with 4-5 more lasagna noodles and spread Alfredo sauce evenly on top. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes until hot and bubbly. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.
