Meat Lasagna

15 Sep

While grocery shopping my husband decided he wanted lasagna. He tried to sneak a Stouffers lasagna in the cart and bury it so I wouldn’t see it until I got home. 

It didn’t work.


I can make a better quality meal for about the same price. 

Ingredients:

1 box oven ready lasagna noodles
16oz container ricotta cheese
1 jar tomato sauce
1-1 1/2lbs lean ground beef
2 eggs
spices optional- oregano, garlic(powder or fresh chopped), onion powder, basil, parsley
Cheese- shredded mozzerella, as much or as little as you like

Preheat oven to recomended temp on noodle box.
Brown and drain the ground beef, if using fresh garlic you may add it to the meat to cook.
After meat is cooked and drained add sauce and spices.
In a bowl combine ricotta cheese with the eggs and parsley I also added some shredded parmesan cheese to the mix.

In a glass 9×13 baking tray pour and spread 1/3 of the meat sauce on the bottom.
Place one layer of pasta, on top of that place and spread evenly about 1/2 of the cheese mixture.
Repeat sauce, pasta, cheese until you use up the sauce and cheese mixture. I ended with a pasta top. You may have a couple of noodles left, this is fine.
On the very top cover in a layer of mozzerella cheese. I like alot of cheese so mine was a thick layer.
Tent with foil to prevent over browning the cheese.
Bake for about 50-60 minutes. Noodle box has all th directions as well.
Remove foil the last 10-15 minutes to brown the cheese on top.
Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
