Week One

So , Its week one of my little experiment, and so far so good. I went shopping on Sunday instead of Saturday , and bought only what was on my list ( go me) .TM and I went kind of low key this week. I didn't come up with anything crazy this week , I went for warm , and easily reheat-able. TM suggested lasagna , sounded perfect. I also made "my" wings , cause they are SO easy.

The lasagna I made was my mom's recipe .. sorta and for the first time I used the noodles you didn't have to boil ( I had them in the pantry)

Mama Good Foods Lasagna

1lb ground beef
1lb sweet Italian sausage
2 boiling onions ( it was all I had)
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
24 oz ricotta
2 eggs
1lb mozzarella
1 package no boil noodles
2 cans of pastene tomato sauce ( its the only sauce I use)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon italian seasoning

I browned the ground beef, sausage, and onion together. Mix ricotta with 2 eggs , season with salt and pepper.
Add sugar, italian seasoning , and garlic to canned tomatoes.

In a 9x13 baking dish layer ingredients , this is really preference.

1st layer sauce , then pasta noodle
2nd layer meat
3rd layer pasta , then ricotta mixture
4th layer sauce and mozzarella
5th layer pasta, and meat , and more ricotta
top layer sauce , and remaining mozzarella cheese

bake at 375 for 30 minutes .

This lasagna looks really good. I have a recipe where you don't boil the noodles first and it saves so much time.
