Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna!  I’ve been under the weather and pretty much slept today away.  Once I woke up, I was starving!  Cooking always makes me feel better, so I made lasagna for dinner.  I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy, so I used ground turkey in the place of sausage (or beef).  I also added grated carrots, buttered spinach, and fresh parsley to the recipe.  It turned out amazing & so light!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1(9 ounce) box barilla no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 2 eggs
  • 1(15 ounce) container ricotta
  • 4cups shredded mozzarella
  • 12cup parmesan
  • 1lb ground beef or sausage, browned & drained
  • 2 (24 ounce) jars pasta sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In bowl, combine beaten eggs, ricotta cheese and TWO cups of the mozzarella cheese and parmesan.
  3. If you choose not to use the parmesan, just add more mozzarella.
  4. Set aside.
  5. In a 13X9X3 pan, spread 1 cup of sauce on bottom of pan.
  6. Layer in the order, 4 uncooked lasagna noodles (they will overlap), then 1/3 part of the ricotta cheese mixture, half the browned meat, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, and 1 cup of spaghetti sauce.
  7. Next layer, 4 uncooked lasagna noodles, 1/3 part of the ricotta cheese mixture, and 1 1/2 Cups sauce.
  8. Next layer, 4 uncooked lasagna noodles, remaining ricotta mixture and remained meat, 1 cup of sauce.
  9. For top layer, 4 uncooked lasagna noodles, remaining sauce, and remaining 1 cup mozzarella.
  10. Bake covered with foil for 50-60 minutes.
  11. Uncover and continue cooking until all the cheese is melted on the top (about 5 minutes).
  12. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
  13. If you are using a 13X9X2 pan—just make 3 layers to avoid boiling over.
