Lasagna Night (April 1)

Hey everyone, want to do lasagna this weekend? Choose your favourite recipe and post it for us.

I'm going to do my standard lasagna and serve it with french bread and caesar salad.

Lasagna recipe

Brown some ground beef, onions and garlic. Add one large can of crushed tomatoes (and a can of tomato paste if needed). Put a small handful of brown sugar in with this and then season to taste with oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Let this simmer for a while.

To assemble, put a bit of tomato sauce in the bottom of the pan then a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles. Ladle some sauce on these then sprinkle a liberal layer of mozzarella and parmesan on this. Repeat until pan is full. End with cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for one hour.

I have tried a chicken/spinach lasagna but my kids hated it. If anyone has a good recipe though, I would like to try that again sometime.

Um, I'll take part, but lasagna is one of those high effort dishes...my recipe is a little different.

1) Find your keys
2) Drive to Papa Murphy's Take-n-Bake
3) Purchase a lasagna from them
4) Take home
5) Put in oven

Though for those who wanna make their own, I've got an amazing recipe from Batali's Molto Italiano cookbook I'll convert over here later--too much work for me to make ever again--I just don't think enough about lasagna to put forth much effort for it, but it was **** tasty.

I've never made homemade sauce before. I use canned
I just layer the noodles, sauce, mozzerella, cottage cheese, parmessan and meat. Maybe I'll look around and find one that I think might be like my momma's.

just made one for company last night. A great hit! (posted my ingredients on the March 26 menu thread.) I hope every one who takes part talkes about it, because whether it is a fancy authentic, or a simple family staple, or a quick fix version...somehow this dish always comes out being welcome and satisfying! enjoy!

I tend to look for the easiest and tastiest way to feed my family. We all love this one and you can add stuff to it to make it more to your liking. Hope you like it!

Have never made it with the dry noodles, have to try it.

Usually like to add sausage, maybe mixed half and half with ground beef, and mushrooms.

And always add ricotta.

Am not wedded to any of this stuff and would be happy to try other recipes.

Just the way I learned to make it..

I'm with auntdot on the mushrooms - a must. Preferably sauteed in a little butter and red wine first.

I can deal with either cottage cheese or ricotta.

And I always add the eggs.
