This lasagna is unique as it features bacon and 3 different types of cheese plus cottage cheese

2 cans (800ml) of diced tomatoes
salt & pepper to taste
4 tbsp olive oil
Italian seasoning to taste
½ lb bacon cut into 1-inch lengths
1 celery stick
1 green pepper
1 white onion
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Fresh spinach
400 grams of cheddar cheese
250 grams of mozzarella cheese
100 grams of parmesan cheese
500 grams of cottage cheese
lasagna noodles
100 ml cream
  1. Empty both cans of tomatoes into a large sauce pot and place on low heat.
  2. Add salt, pepper, two tablespoons of olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning
  3. Simmer 2 hours
  4. Add in the chopped celery to the sauce
  5. In a separate sauce pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, add chopped green pepper, onion and bacon on low heat and when cooked for 20 minutes and add to the sauce.
  6. Add cream and stir
  7. Simmer for another 2 hours stirring frequently
  8. In your lasagna baking pan place a small amount of sauce  on the bottom of the tray. This will prevent the noodles from sticking to the pan and ensure they are cooked properly .
  9. Next place one layer of noodles at the bottom and avoid overlapping any of the noodles.
  10. Then with a straining spoon place a thin layer of sauce and spread it on top of the noodles
  11. Add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese followed with 1/3 of the cottage cheese.
  12. Place a good portion of fresh raw spinach.  Don’t worry if it appears to be a lot, it will cook down.
  13. Add another layer of noodles on top and repeat adding sauce, then mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese.
  14. Add as many layers as you like, three should be sufficient
  15. Add the last layer of noodles and add a thin layer of sauce to make the noodles moist so they don't remain hard. Then add in the remaining cheddar cheese.
  16. Put your oven on to 375oC, cover the lasagna with aluminum foil and place into the oven for around 45 minutes.
  17. After 45 minutes take off the foil and leave in the oven for another 10 minutes to allow the top to cook a bit more and especially to let the top layer of cheese to melt
  18. Turn the heat off and you can let sit in the over for another 5 minutes before taking it out. Of course use common sense to judge when your lasagna might be ready as it is about 1 hour cooking time.
