My Mom has made a killer lasagna my whole life. And it's mostly homemade from scratch. I put a spin on the one that I made tonight and actually made my own sauce instead of using store-bought, and it was Yummy!
Oh, correction - Brent tells me that I made HIS sauce tonight, not my own sauce...and he's territorial about his spaghetti sauce! He told me that I couldn't share that portion of the recipe with you - what a stinker!
Well, here's the rest of the recipe, and like I said, I've always made it using just normal Prego sauce, so it's good either way. And it's super easy to make, just takes some time and planning.
Box of lasagna noodles (oven ready, if possible)
Large jar of sauce (possibly even two jars, depending on how saucy you like your lasagna)
small white onion
fresh garlic, pressed (optional)
3 Tbsp butter
1 lb of ground meat
small curd cottage cheese (small container)
1-2 packs of shredded mozzarella (depending on how cheesy you want it)
Saute the onions to your liking.
In small bowl, combine cottage cheese and egg together. Mix well. Set aside.
When you get close to the top of the pan, put down one last layer of noodles, then sauce and then cheese. You should now be at the top of the pan.
When ready to cook, bake on 350 degrees for an hour to an hour and a half.
Another note that I'll add: I like to put toothpicks into the lasagna before I cover it with foil so that the foil doesn't touch the cheese.
Let me know if you try this recipe out and what you think of it...I'd love to hear!
