Lasagna. Seriously it's one of my favorite things to eat. And this girl is not a fan of Italian food. There's just something about all that pasta, sauce and cheese. Oh goodness, the cheese. Ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan. The list could go on and on. So, last week I whipped this up for dinner and it was heaven. Pair it with a tasty garlic bread and a fabulous salad and you're done. You'll have dinner and leftovers for a couple days. Unless you're feeding a group of 8, then you'll have just enough for dinner.
1 box oven ready noodles
1 lb ground turkey, chicken, beef
1 - 12oz ricotta
1 - 12oz cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (reserve 1/2 cup)
Cook up your meat. Add your pasta sauce. Let it simmer for a few minutes until warmed. While that's simmering, mix the ricotta,cottage cheese, Parmesan and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Scoop out just enough meat sauce to barely cover the bottom of a 9x12 baking dish. Lay out enough pasta to cover the sauce. Spread 1/3 cheese mixture across the pasta, scoop out more meat sauce to just cover cheese mixture. Do another two layers of pasta, cheese, meat sauce. Lastly cover it up with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Toss it in the oven covered on 350 for 30 minutes.
