Homemade Lasagna

I have been building up to this for days!  I decided to venture into cheese making and made some mozzarella and ricotta cheese.  Once I knew photo(47)I was going to make lasagna, I wanted to do all of it from scratch.  So…short of raising the cow I did it!  It was super fun and TASTY!!

Here is what you need:

12  ounces mozzarella cheese

8 ounces ricotta cheese

9 strips lasagna noodles

1 pound hamburger meat, browned (You could use sausage if you prefer.)

26 ounces pasta sauce

1 teaspoon salt

Dump your meat, pasta sauce, ricotta cheese and salt into a bowl and mix well.

Use about 1/4 cup of your sauce and spread on the bottom of your pan.  Then, lay three noodles across the bottom. (I used fresh pasta and did not cook them ahead of time.  If you are using packaged lasagna noodles you don’t need to boil them, but add about 1/3 of a cup of water to your mixture.)

Use about 1/3 of your mixture and spread evenly over your pasta noodles.  Repeat this two more times until you have three layers of lasagna in the pan.

Spread your mozzarella cheese evenly over the top.  Since I used my homemade mozzarella cheese, I just sliced it rather than grate it.  I wanted to get good tasty chunks of cheese!!!

Bake on 350 for 30-40 minutes.

This is fantastic with some cheesy garlic bread!!!  ENJOY 🙂
