My Grandpa Vinny was Italian~  Mama Mondy made this lasagna… mostly for special occasions.  It was a favorite for Christmas dinner.  My grandparents would be proud that we are still making their lasagna and sharing it with friends and family!

INGREDIENTS

1 pound ground meat ( turkey, elk, beef)

1 pound ground Italian sausage

10 lasagna noodles

4 cloves garlic crushed

1 yellow onion chopped

2 teaspoons dry basil

2 teaspoons dry oregano

1 teaspoon parsley

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried chile flakes

1 can diced tomatoes

2 cans tomato sauce

1 small can tomato paste

2 cups ricotta or cottage cheese

3 eggs lightly beaten

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

2-3 cups grated mozzarella cheese

 

DIRECTIONS

 

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine ground meat and sausage along with onion and garlic, season with salt & pepper,  and brown in a pan until meat is just cooked.  Drain oil and liquid from pan.
  3. Add basil, oregano, season with salt and pepper again.  combine this mixture with tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and let it simmer for 40 minutes.
  4. Mix ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese) with parmesan, parsley and eggs.
  5. Spray pan with Pam.  I use 2-3 smaller pans and freeze them prior to baking.
  6. Spread some of the sauce in the bottom of pan.  Layer dried noodle over the top and don’t overlap.
  7. Spread ricotta cheese mixture over noodles.
  8. Add a light layer of sauce. And top that with mozzarella cheese.
  9. Add another layer of noodle and repeat.

If you would like to make this vegetarian- Sautee mushrooms, bell peppers, eggplant, olives, zucchini– or whatever veggies you have– and substitute them for the meat.  In addition…  a bag of frozen and drained spinach to the ricotta cheese mixture.
