Happy almost-Friday! One of my personal goals has been to get a little fancier in the kitchen, as in, eat more adult-type, legitimate meals other than a basic salad, or pasta. Things that require some effort. My latest attempt? Meat lasagna!
This recipe is pretty basic (I tweaked one I found online), and was very easy to follow! I will admit, it wasn’t quite seamless for me though. My pan was a little too small so the lasagna noodles didn’t fit perfectly in there. But otherwise it went well!
What You’ll Need (Ingredients)
1 box of lasagna noodles
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 (16 oz.) package of ricotta cheese
~1 lbs. lean ground beef
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Note: I like to throw in pictures of ingredients on here so you can grab and go if you’re referring to this post at the grocery store/on the go. So if you’re doing that, don’t forget the eggs! I accidentally left them out of the photo.
Let’s get started!
Fill a pot with water and add lasagna noodles. Heat until boiling/noodles are soft.
Place meat in skillet and heat until meat has browned. Then drain, and stir in sauce.
In a separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese, eggs, and mozzarella cheese until smooth.
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Grease 9×13″ pan. Place lasagna noodle in and layer with meat/sauce, and cheese/egg mix. Repeat until pan is full. Top with sauce and cheese.Then, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Check to make sure the cheese has melted and begun to brown. If it has, take the pan out of the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
