Lasagna

A recipe from my mom…cookie bake, christmas, etc 021

1 lb. lasagna noodles

1 lb. hamburger

1 qt. spaghetti sauce

1 lb. mozzarella cheese

1 lb. ricotta cheese

2 eggs

Brown hamburger and add spaghetti sauce and any extra seasonings: ( salt, pepper, oregano). Mix cheese and eggs. Cover bottom of a 9×13 pan with meat and sauce. Add a layer of raw noodles. Here is where I change it . I like it better when I cook the noodles first 🙂 Put all the cheese on the noodles. Cover with another layer of noodles. Add rest of sauce and meat mixture. Bake 1 good hour at 350 degrees. Let set 10 minutes before eating.cookie bake, christmas, etc 022I love how quick and easy this is to put together. Plus everyone likes it.cookie bake, christmas, etc 024The evening we had this, Jenna was not into eating. So she had a very small amount, and I did not eat much either. Downsizing my portions and all 🙂 So we ate over half the pan of this cheesy goodness. Sometimes I wonder, is the amount of food we consume normal?? 🙂 I’m just thinking how they will eat when they get a bit older. I find myself telling them sometimes that they’ve had enough to eat. I don’t want to be a dictator about it, but I also want them to learn to slow down and enjoy their food. To learn not to stuff themselves 🙂

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! Happy New Year!!
