Simple Cooking - Cheesy Skillet Lasagna


1 pound ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic, undrained
2 jars (14 oz. each) spaghetti sauce
1 can cream of onion soup, undiluted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 box no-bake-lasagna noodles
1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet, brown ground beef with garlic and drain when no longer pink. Add tomatoes and sauce, and heat through. Set aside the ground beef mixture in a large bowl. In a bowl, mix together the eggs, soup, cottage cheese, and Italian seasoning. Spread a cup of the meat mixture evenly to bottom of the skillet. Layer with a cup of cottage cheese mixture and noodles (break the noodles to fit). Repeat layers and top with remaining sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the noodles are tender. Remove from heat and sprinkle with shredded cheeses. Cover for a couple of minutes to allow cheese to melt.
