  • Those ripply noodles make something

    We love pasta.

    I’ve made all sorts of pasta dishes and we just can’t get enough.  What keeps us going back?  They are SO easy and tasty.
    Lasagna is one of our favorites.  I used to be afraid to make it because the only time I was involved with making it I messed it up, like huge.  A lady was babysitting us while my mother was on vacation with a friend and one night we were set to eat lasagna.  Not quite sure what possessed me to tell our poor sitter that my mom didn’t boil the noodles before she put the dish in the oven, but I did.  ROCK HARD noodles.  HOrrible and no dinner.  I think we just had sandwiches instead.  So, all these years later I finally put aside my fears and made my own lasagna.
    I’m not a fan of ricotta so I only use cottage cheese and sauce for the juice. (but you’re more than welcome to throw it on, it won’t mess this up at all)
    I make sure my meat is tasty with garlic…
    and onions and salt and pepper to taste.
    Then I take a greased casserole dish and layer my al dente noodles covered first with my sauce and cottage cheese and then with meat and mozzarella.
    I cook about 12 noodles and layer until they are all gone
    Stick it in the oven at 350 for about 30 min or until the cheese and juices are bubbly.
    I usually serve with homemade garlic bread.  D is very good at making that stuff.  He toasts some French bread, then takes little cloves of fresh garlic and rubs them onto the toast, coats it with butter and voila!
    Deeelightful!  Enjoy, and tell me if you have the occasion to make this for your family.
