• ½ pound ground spicy Italian sausage
• ½ medium onion, chopped
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon ground oregano
• ½ teaspoon ground basil
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon pepper
• 1 can whole peeled tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
• 1 can tomato sauce

Lasagna toppings:
• ½ cup small curd cottage cheese

5. In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, parsley, and eggs.
