Our favorite lasagna

Oh lasagna.  I think it is probably one of most expensive foods I make, and since we aren’t very good about eating leftovers, I can only justify making it every once in awhile.  I don’t stick firmly to a recipe, but it always seems to come out pretty tasty, so here is my most recent batch for your viewing consumption.

You’ll need:

  • one box of lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 pound of sweet Italian sausage, removed from the casings
  • 3 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 2 28-ounce jars of tomato sauce
  • 32 ounces of ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan

Brown your ground beef and sausage with the minced garlic.  Add the jarred sauce, and bring your sauce to a simmer.  Spread roughly 1 cup of the sauce on the bottom of your lasagna pan.

Layer with three cooked lasagna noodles.

Combine the ricotta, eggs, grated Parmesan, and Italian seasoning.  Spread about half of this mixture on top of your noodles.

Cover with another cup of sauce.

Cover with a few handfuls of mozzarella.

Now repeat, starting with more noodles.

The last layer will be noodles, a little more sauce (just to keep the noodles from drying out), mozzarella, and the shredded Parmesan.

Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.

Let it sit for at least 10 minutes before you serve it up!
