Busy Girls Lasagna & Cheap Art

Had a wonderful time on vacation! Thanks for all your sweet words!! I have added a new page on the blog entitled $5 Art! It is where I will show some recent favorite photos—and they are available for purchase! See my $5 art page today!!
 Here is a super easy meal…whip is up tonight! Really super easy!!
A great recipe for those super busy days! It comes together fast because there is no need to cook the noodles first!
Pinch of red pepper, oregano, basil, salt and pepper

Brown the meat and break it up…

Chop up the mushrooms and onions…

When the meat is browned…add in a clove of garlic (minced) along with onions and mushrooms…

Stir in the sauce and spices….

Layer sauce, broken noodles (uncooked), sauce again, cheese, noodles, sauce, cheese noodles…(shall I go on??)

End with a layer of sauce — (I used provolone and mozzerella, we don’t like ricotta in our house)

Above is what it looks like prior to begin covered with foil.

Tightly wrap in foil (the steam cooks the noodles..) and place on a cookie sheet to catch drips. Bake and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving :)
Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 onion, chopped

8 Oz mushrooms, chopped

1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

Mozzerella or Provolone..or any cheese you like
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles

Directions

1.In a large skillet, cook and stir ground beef until brown. Add mushrooms and onions and garlic; saute until onions are transparent. Stir in pasta sauce and spices, and heat through.

2.Spread a thin layer of the meat sauce in the bottom of a 13×9 inch pan ( I used a smaller 9 by 9 pan). Layer with uncooked lasagna noodles, cheese, sauce. Continue layering until all ingredients are used. Cover pan with aluminum foil.

4.Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 45 minutes. Uncover, and top with a bit more cheese (parmesan is great) . Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

    That looks delicious! I never make lasagna because my husband hates ricotta. This just may help me bring it back to the table!
