My Frugal Lasagna

Tonight I decided to try out the lasagna recipe only using my frugal find food. Guess what it turned out pretty good. Instead of lasagna noodles I used the No-Yolks noodles and instead of ricotta I used cottage cheese. I blended up the cottage cheese (thanks to a tip from my friend Ellen) to make it closer to a ricotta consistnecy.

So lets calculate the cost................Coupon prices in purple  Winco/Costco prices in green

1lb ground beef $1.88 $2.24
32 oz Prego sauce $0.75 $2
1 ¾ c (15oz) Cottage Cheese $0.80 $2
1 egg $0.11 $0.13
½ tsp Basil $0.05 $0.05
½ tsp Italian seasoning $0.05 $0.05
1 bag No-Yolk egg noodles $0.49 $2
4 cups mozzarella  $0.96 $4
1/4c Parmesan $0.24 $1

Total $5.33 coupon shopping
$13.47 old way of shopping

The old way is a guess. It has been so long since I shopped the old way that I am not perfectly sure of all the prices. How do you think I did? Should it be higher or lower?
