Lasagne Night February 11th

As per the other thread and Corazon's suggestion, here it is folks... Lasagna night!!

My recipe is simple, I make my meat sauce with ground beef, garlic and onions, then I toss in some Italian type herbs (basil, oregano and sometimes a bay leaf just for fun), put in a can of crushed tomatoes and a handful of brown sugar. I let that simmer while I put the other stuff together.

Bottom layer is a heavy smear of tomato sauce (leave as much meat out as possible) then a layer of uncooked lasagne noodles, then a layer of meat sauce and a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese with a heavy dose of parmesan on top. I repeat this until I run out of noodles or sauce. LOL. Then I top with extra cheese and cover with foil. Bake in the oven at 350 for one hour and uncover and bake an extra 10 minutes to brown up the cheese.

Thanks Alix!

I will be going for a Spinach, Mushroom, Chicken, Hot Italian Sausage and Four Cheese Lasagna. This is a new recipe I found from Food Network
but I'll be adding the Chicken and Sausage in addition to the original recipe. It has a white sauce, which I've never had in lasagna before. Should be good though.

I'm going to serve this with a big salad and for an appetizer I'll be making homemade mozzerella sticks for the first time. Think I'll just dip them in egg wash, then flour, then again in egg, then panko. I think I'll throw some herbs and parm cheese in the panko too. Anything else I need to know about mozz sticks?
