Easy Spinach Lasagna

I have a few things that I have been wanting to post, but this is the first thing that was ready to write up so here we go!
I recently made my VERY FIRST Lasagna and it turned out superb, so I thought that I would share the recipe. I used THIS recipe, but altered it quite a bit, making a little lower in fat!

Easy Spinach Lasagna
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 lb. italian sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 jar spagetti sauce
1 sm. can tomato sauce
1 pint low fat cottage cheese
1 pint low fat ricotta cheese
1/4 c. parmesan cheese, grated
1 10 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed
2 eggs
1 box whole wheat lasagna noodles ***DO NOT BUY "NO BAKE" NOODLES***
2 c. 2% mild cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large pot sautee onions. Add ground beef and sausage and brown then add the spaghetti and tomato sauce and heat thoroughly.

3. In a medium bowl add cottage, ricotta and parmesan cheese along with thawed spinach and both eggs. Stir all ingredients until well combined.

4. In a 9x13 pan layer your ingredients sauce, noodles, cheese making sure to end with the sauce mixture.

5. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and top with cheddar cheese and bake for an additional 15 minutes, uncovered. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
