It even looks better in your own casserole dish than it does in those silly tinfoil pans. But it looks the best paired with your favorite side dish on a your plate in the comfort of your dining room. (or by your keyboard for that matter!)
Of course, my favorite side dish is a nice fresh, crisp green salad, but I haven't been to the grocery store yet and so my children's favorite side would have to do. I know that big ol' pan of lasagna looks too big for most people to even consider making, but it is awesome reheated as well.
Lasagna w/ 1337sauce
8-10 Servings | Total Time: 45 Minutes | Journeyman
- 1 package Lasagna Noodles
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 2 tsp. Minced Garlic
- 1 Tbl. Italian Seasoning
- 1 jar Spaghetti Sauce
- 12 oz Cottage Cheese
- 1 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Craft: Preheat oven to 375 °. Brown ground beef in skillet with garlic and Italian seasoning. In a large mixing bowl, combine spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese and beef. This makes your 1337sauce! Line the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish with 3-4 uncooked lasagna noodles. Coat the noodles with half of the 1337sauce and spread evenly. Layer on 3/4 cup of both Mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses. Next, sprinkle 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Repeat layering beginning with the lasagna noodles and ending with the Parmesan. Place in oven to cook for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.
Strategies: The ground beef can be substituted with Italian sausage and the cottage cheese for ricotta. If you are concerned about regular lasagna noodles not cooking thoroughly then boil them for 3 minutes before layering them or use the oven-ready style.
