Recipes For Tuesday’s Blog Hop

My recipe is for Lasagne.  It’s one of my family’s favorites.  I got the recipe from my former pastor’s wife and I always think of her whenever I cook it.

LASAGNE

You will need 1 (8oz) package of uncooked lasagne noodles–to be cooked while the sauce simmers.

Meatsauce (cook this first)

1 lb. ground beef                                   1- (1 lb) can of tomatoes (I like crushed)

1 tsp. garlic powder                             2 (6 oz) cans tomatoe paste

1Tbsp. basil                                             small can of mushrooms (drain)

1 tsp. salt                                                 

2 tsp. sugar  

Brown meat slowly, drain.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.  If sauce is too thick add small amount of water.

Cheese Filling:

3 cups cottage cheese                     2 beaten eggs

1/2 c. Parmesan cheese                 1 tsp. salt

1 Tbsp. parsley flakes                     2 (8oz) pks mozzarell cheese slices

While the meatsauce is simmering, combine all of the above ingredients together except the cheese slices.  Refrigerate the cheese filling for now. 

Boil the lasagne noodles according to package directions, usually takes 12 minutes.  I add a little oil to the water to prevent noodles from sticking together.  When noodles are done, drain and rinse under cold water.

In a 13×9 or larger(mine is a little larger) greased dish, layer 1/2 of the cooked lasagne noodles on the bottom.  Spread 1/2 of the cheese filling on top of the noodles.  I put tiny spoonfuls on.  Cover the cheese filling with 1  package of cheese slices.100_0968

Spoon 1/2 of the meatsauce on top of the cheese slices.  On top of the meatsauce, spread another layer of lasagne noodles.  Repeat a layer of the cheese mixture, then the cheese slices, ending with the remaining meatsauce on top.  Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 30-45 minutes(until bubbly in the middle).  Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.

Serve with hot French or Italian bread and a salad for a delicious complete meal.  It’s one of our favorites!  Enjoy!
