La La La La La Lasagna!

For my wonderful husband's birthday I made him a delicious double meat, four cheese lasagna. I didn't use a recipe but somehow it still turned out pretty darn fabulous!


1 package No-Bake lasagna noodles
1 package ground beef
1 package sausages
1 green pepper
1 zucchini
1 yellow onion
6-8 mushrooms
1 tub unripened Ricotta cheese
1 package frozen spinach (fresh would probably work too)
1 egg
1 large can marinara sauce (or use homemade)
3-4 cloves garlic
Herbs (rosemary, sage, oregano, basil, mustard, etc)
~1 cup mozzarella cheese
~1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

First, the sauce:
Brown the meat (ground beef and sausages) in a large pan. Fry off or drain all the fat. Add veggies. Saute for five minutes, then add the marinara sauce, garlic, and season to taste. Allow to simmer.

Then, the ricotta cheese and spinach layer:
Combine the ricotta cheese, spinach, and egg in a large bowl. I also added a bit of mozza and cheddar to this layer.

Finally, put it all together:

Cheese! Cheese! Cheese!

Bake at 350oC for about 40 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and crispy and browning.

Coming next - veggie lasagna and caesar salad with homemade dressing. Mmmmmm!
