Tonight - I made Lasagna tonight that was out of this world so I HAD to share.
*1lb sweet sausage *2 TBS White Sugar
*1/2 lb ground beef *1 1/2 tsp dried basil
*1/2 minced onion *1/2 tsp fennel seeds
*3 garlic cloved minced *1 tsp italian seasonings
*1 (28 oz) can crushed tomates *1 tbs salt
*2 (6 oz) cans of tomato paste *1/4 tsp black pepper
*1 (15 oz) can of tomato sauce
*1/2 cup of water
Cook meats, onions and garlic and cook until softened or browned. Then add the remaining ingredients and simmer at LEAST an hour!
Home made noodles:
*2 cups whole wheat flour
*1/4 tsp salt
*water as needed
Have you made noodles? If not check here for this recipe. My one disclaimer is that I always roll my noodles for lasagna PAPER THIN literally the thinnest setting on my pasta roller that I can. Why you ask? Well it is essential to me that a lasagna have a lot of THIN layers, for one the flavor is SO MUCH better. Don't believe me? Make one. Then you can tell me a 6 noodle lasagna of 2 layers is better than my 5 or six =)
*1 16 oz container of ricotta
Beat together and make creamy
*1 cup mozzarella
*1/4-1/2 cup Asiago
*1/4-1/2 cup Parmesan
My layering technique is as follows.
*a little sauce
*parm and asiago for the top!
Bake at 350* covered for 20 minutes and then uncovered for 20 more!
Then devour. Warning - you may eat every last bite. I am so glad I made this in my Tupperware Brand Ovenware - cleanup was SO easy! Need to get some of your own? (Yes of course you do, everyone needs this amazing stuff) Shop here!
