Recipe: Lasagne

If you have a lot of mouths to feed or want to make a dish that will last you a few days, have you thought about making lasagne at home? It's fairly easy to make, it can be made the day/night before, and is the ultimate comfort food.

Here's how I make mine:

1) Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add uncooked lasagne noodles and boil for 8 minutes. Drain and lay the lasagne noodles flat on a greased cookie sheet.

2) Add olive oil to frying pan and add chopped onions. Once onions are translucent, add 1 lb of Italian Sausage and cook until sausage is cooked all the way through.  Add 1 1/3 jars of ready-made pasta sauce to the pan.  Add chopped mushrooms.  Bring mixture to a boil. Once it starts boiling, remove from heat.

3) Add half of the leftover pasta sauce (you should have 2/3 of a jar left) to the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Then you are going to do the following 3 times:
       a) lay 5 pieces of lasagne
       b) spread 1/3 of your sauce/onion mixture onto the lasagne, 
       c)  add 1/3 of a 15 oz cup of ricotta cheese
       d) sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

4) Pour remaining pasta sauce on top, cover with foil, and bake in pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, uncover, sprinkle mozzarella cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and heat uncovered for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

If you want to bake later on, you'll need to increase the baking time 10-15 minutes.
