Brown beef.  Add onions and cook until transparent.  Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, bay leaves, oregano, parsley, basil, minced garlic, salt and pepper.  Simmer two hours.

Meanwhile, combine cottage cheese and eggs.  Set aside.  Combine Mozzarella and Monterey Jack Cheese.  Grease a 9X13 pan and a 9x9 pan or three 9x9’s.
Just before sauce is ready cook noodles as directed on package.

Using half of each layer:

Repeat with remaining halves.  Sprinkle top with grated parmesan cheese.
