Before going in the oven.
Last night we had lasagna, seasoned italian bread, and salad for dinner with hot fudge cake for dessert. The lasagna that I make is extremely easy, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.
1 lbs extra lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
1.5 jars spaghetti sauce
9 lasagna noodles
1 15oz Ricotta cheese
1. Brown the ground beef, drain, and add in the spaghetti sauce. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Boil your noodles until tender or almost tender.
3. Add a thin layer of meat sauce on bottom of 9 x 13 in pan, then a layer of noodles, and a layer of ricotta cheese, then sprinkle a thin layer of mozzarella and parmesan. Continue this until your baking dish is full. The final layer should be of mozzarella and parmesan.
4. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake approximately 30 minutes or until everything is warm and bubbly.
5. Serve hot.
Mine didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped last night. I was talking to Alex while cooking and ended up dumping 2 whole jars of spaghetti sauce into the meat pan instead of one and a half, so the lasagna was a little messy.
Also, here are the pictures of the HFC that I promised in this post. Doesn't it look yummy??
