Vintage Lasagna, Layered with Mushrooms, Italian Sausage and More … from Mom

This is a challenge. A retro 1970s lasagna, that includes delicious layers upon layers of mushrooms, Italian sausage, ground beef, cheese and pasta, but, oh my gosh, no instruction!

Trumpeter Hill has re-created some instruction here, but recommends chefs feel free to adjust the quantities, and add their own spice (oregano, basil, garlic) to taste and as desired.

Also, the recipe calls for cottage cheese, and that could be substituted with ricotta cheese. Trumpeter Hill posts the original recipe, but acknowledges there is a continuing debate over which is preferable: 1. Cottage cheese adds additional flavor, but leaves liquid in the lasagna.  2.  Ricotta cheese provides a firm lasagna, and more appetizing appearance. Feel free to post your preference!
