Instructions

  1. Boil the potatoes until soft. Then mash with the butter, milk and garlic. Add the salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Fry the onions until nicely caramelized.
  3. Cook the lasagna noodles until soft. Store cooked noodles in cold water to prevent the sheets from sticking. Alternatively, if using gluten free noodles, just let them soften in warm water.
  4. Build the casserole in a 9″ x 13″ lasagna dish. Start with a layer of lasagna noodles on the bottom. Then layer in 1/2 the mashed potatoes. Top with all of the fried onions and the cottage cheese. Then add a second layer of mashed potatoes. Top the casserole with a final layer of lasagna noodles and finish with the cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake at 350F for 40 min, until the cheese is browning.
  6. Serve with sour cream and chives.
