Lasagna

Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1lb canned tomato
  • 12oz tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • garlic
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 12 lasagna noodles (boiled)
  • 3 cups ricotta cheese OR cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • parsley flakes
  • dash salt
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 18 mozzarella cheese slices

Directions

Step 1
brown the ground beef and then add the tomato, tomato paste, basil, garlic, and salt. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
Step 2
boil the lasagna noodles as directed
Step 3
mix the ricotta (or cottage) cheese with the eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper.
Step 4
Assemble the lasagna in a well-greased 9x13 pan: noodles, cheese mix, mozzarella cheese, meat, repeat (I usually get three full layers, but if you make the layers super thick, you might only get two)
Step 5
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 375 degrees (or for 45 minutes if you refrigerate the lasagna before hand)
