   Cook lasagna in a large quantity of boiling water
   until just barely tender; drain off most of water; add
   ice cubes to stop cooking. (Allow lasagna to stand in
   cold water to prevent pasta sticking together.) In a
   saucepan, brown meat with onion and garlic; drain off
   fat. Cook over low heat, covered, for about 5 min.
   Stir in mushrooms with liquid, tomato sauce, tomato
   paste, salt and oregano. Simmer 15 mins. Combine egg
   with spinach, cottage and parmesan cheeses. Spread 1/3
   of meat sauce in 13x9 in. baking dish. Cover 1/4 of
   lasagna (about 5 overlapping strips.) Alternate
   another 1/3 of sauce and 1/4 of lasagna. Spread
   spinach mixture over pasta and cover with 1/4 lasagna
   strips. Top with remaining sauce and pasta. Arange
   mozzarella cheese on top. Bake at 350F for 30 mins.
   Let stand 10 mins. before serving.
