Bring pot of water to full boil with a tblsp of oil and a dash of salt, add lasagna noodles. Cook to al dente. Meanwhile in a seperate pan brown ground beef. While that's cooking, in a large bowl dump cottage cheese and prego together; mix well. Rinse noodles well in cold water in colander and let set to cool. Add ground beef to sauce mixture and mix; add basil, and italian seasoning, mix everything well. Shred cheese and place in bowl. You should now have a dish of noodles, a bowl of cheese and a big bowl with the meat and sauce.
Spray the bottom of a big baking pan. Place noodles across bottom. Should take about 3 to 4 noodles. Place a couple of spoons of sauce mix and spread evenly across the top of the noodles. Next add your cheese and sprinkle on top of sauce mix. Repeat steps until all ingredients are used up or you run out of room.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes covered with foil, remove foil last 15 minutes of baking.
I have tried making this with other sauces and the flavor just isn't as good according the wisdom of my children, but make sure you hide the jar when company comes over and they will never be wiser...
