My Favorite Lasagna

I’ve been thinking about lasagna allllllllllll week. I know it’s kind of a silly thing to make for one person, but that’s pretty standard for my kitchen. I did promise Big Char I’d save her a piece though (you’re welcome, Mom). Conversely, my sister A will be cranky when she reads this as she doesn’t believe in using ricotta cheese in lasagna.

  • Brown 1 pound of Italian sausage.lasagna
    • Drain and set aside.
  • In mixing bowl, combine…
    • 15 ounces ricotta cheese
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups of mozzarella
    • 1/2 cup of Parmesan
    • Mix well and set aside
  • In the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan, layer…
    • 1 cup of roasted garlic tomato sauce*
    • 3 “no boil” lasagna noodles
    • 1 cup of sauce
    • 1/4 of the ricotta mixture
    • 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese
    • 1/3 of cooked Italian sausage
  • Continue layering, ending with ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with extra mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 375* for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking 5-10 more minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

This is two weeks in a row of making comfort food on Sunday, so I’d better get back on the exercise band wagon!

* You need a total of 2 jars of sauce and 4 cups of mozzarella.
