Best Mothers Day Lasagna or Any Day
Recipe by: Erin Collins
1 box Lasagna Noodles
2 large Prego pasta sauce
1 medium white onion – diced
1 medium green pepper – diced
1 large Package Mushrooms sliced
1 clove Garlic minced
1 large Bag Mozzarella cheese – shredded
1 Bag Parmesan cheese – shredded
1 Fresh mozzarella – chunked
1 16 oz. Large curd cottage cheese
1 16 oz. Ricotta cheese
1 1/2 lb Ground Beef (lean)
1 packages Bob Evans Italian Sausage
3 tbsp olive oil – seperated
Start water in large stock pot to boil, while waiting on water begin to sauté onion, and green pepper in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Once onions and green peppers are soft and kinda translucent transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Then sauté sliced mushrooms in 1 tablespoon olive oil, they will let out a lot of moisture….make sure you drain them before adding to mixing bowl.
Once water is at a rapid boil, add noodles to water. Put in some salt to help keep the noodles from sticking. Cook until done.
In a seperate mixing bowl add ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, 1 heaping cup parmesan, 1 egg and mix all together. This will be your cheese mixture.
Brown your ground beef and DRAIN! Make sure you drain all excess fat/grease so it doesnt collect on top. After draining add to mixing bowl with veggies.
Next brown the italian sausage, add last tablespoon of olive oil to help crate some grease. Once done drain this also, then add to the ground beef and veggies.
Drain the pasta, be careful not to burn your hands…and get ready to start the construction of the best lasagna ever!
Preheat oven to 350. Get your pan and put down a layer of the sauce, follow with a layer of noodles.
Next layer is sauce again, then meat/veggie mixture add tablespoon dollops of cheese mixture every couple inches, top with some sauce.
Add noodle layer then a whole layer of cheese mixture, then meat mixture, then some chunks of fresh mozzarella, and some shredded parmigiano.
Top with a last layer of noodles then meat then sauce then shredded mozzarella and fresh mozzarella and shredded parm.Cover with foil and put in oven @ 350°F for 45 minutes…then remove foil and finish for the last 30 minutes of so until browned.
Once it is hot and bubbly, and browned, take out of the oven and let cool until it has solidified….about 15 minutes. Then ENJOY!
Patty's Best Crockpot Lasagna
Recipe by: nurse22
1 box uncooked lasagna noodles
1 1/2 lbs ground chuck
2 (15 oz) Jars of Prego or your famous sauce
1 small can of tomato paste
1-2 stalks celery
1 large onion
1 1/2 cups carrots
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp Italian seasoning
to taste salt & pepper
1 dash pepper flakes, or to taste
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
3 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese
3 cups mozzarella cheese
1 egg beaten
1 Tbsp evoo (extra virgin olive oil )
2 cups fresh spinach
16 oz Provolone Cheese
Puree the onion, carrots and celery. Add puree to hot saute pan with evoo and cook on high, stirring to release the natural juices and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Place aside in large pot until later.
Brown ground chuck and drain excess grease. Add the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and pepper flakes and balsamic vinegar to the cooked beef. Mix cooked beef to the puree.
Mix together chopped spinach, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese, beaten egg, nutmeg and salt& pepper. Set aside.
Sauté garlic in evoo for about 3 minutes, don’t let it burn. Add tomato paste and add 2 cans of water using empty tomato paste can. Cook on high, stirring frequently until most of liquid is gone. Add both jars of Prego to paste and sugar. Salt and pepper to taste. Add sauce to meat and veggie puree mixture. Mix well. Set aside.
Build your mountain of lasagna now. Spray inside crockpot with cooking spray or oil to prevent sticking. Cover the bottom of crockpot with meat/sauce mixture. Then add a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (breaking them to fit and overlapping is good). Then add enough cheese mixture to cover the noodles (you can use a spatula to spread it evenly ). Then add more noodles, then cheese mixture, then meat/sauce, and finally end with meat sauce on top. Make sure all of the noodles are covered in sauce to prevent drying out. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top. When it’s almost done, an hour or 30 mins before add a layer of mozzarella cheese and provolone cheese to the top so it can melt and be more gooey and yummy. :-p Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours (depends on size of crockpot and how long you are willing to wait.
Enjoy! Please give me feedback so i can improve and not torture my family. Thanks all.
