Add 6 Tbsp. parsley flakes, salt, tomato paste, tomatoes, sugar, basil and clove garlic to the sausage/ground beef mix. Simmer for 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir together: 2 Tbsp. parsley flakes, Smith's cottage cheese, salt/pepper, parmesan cheese and small amount of chopped onion. Set aside.
Cook lasagna noodles in water, adding a little salt and olive oil for 10-13 minutes.
Put a layer of noodles in the bottom of a large casserole dish (9" x 12") or pan. Spread cottage cheese mixture over the noodles (about 1/2 the mixture); then a layer of sliced mozzarella cheese; and finally, spread about 1/2 the meat sauce over the cheese.
Repeat the layers. After the last layer, top with Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with paprika.
