Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook lasagna noodles according to package directions for al dente.
In large saucepan combine water, crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes, black pepper, Italian seasoning and ground round, stir to combine ingredients in the sauce.
Let simmer for about 30 minutes. I let it simmer until my noodles are finished cooking.
Cover the bottom of a 9x13x2 inch baking pan with 1½ cups of sauce mixture.
Arrange 1/3 of noodles on top of sauce, slightly overlapped.
Top with ½ of cottage cheese, ½ of mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of sauce.
Repeat layers and top with last 1/3 of noodles and the remaining sauce.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and the additional 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 45 - 1 hour; until it's bubbly and the cheese is melted.
Uncover and cook additional 10 - 15 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
