This Million Dollar Lasagna is seriously THE BEST lasagna we've ever eaten!!! SO easy to make and tastes like a million bucks. Lasagna noodles, cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, Italian sausage, spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan. Serve with some garlic bread and a salad. Can make in advance and refrigerate. Freeze leftovers for later. We LOVE this lasagna casserole recipe!!!
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a bowl, combine cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, egg, and parsley. Set aside.
Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup meat sauce in the bottom of the pan. Top with 6 lasagna noodles, lengthwise and overlapping to cover.
Top noodles with half of the cottage cheese, top with third of mozzarella cheese. Spoon 1/2 of meat sauce over cheese; sprinkle with 1/4 cup parmesan.
