Lasanga

This is the base recipe I make at home. It is originally based off some Microwave Lasagna recipe book that came with our first ever microwave when I was a kid. This is NOT a Microwaveable recipe.

Ingredients,,,
  • 1 lb ground beef (substitute ground chicken or turkey if you want less fat)
  • 1 lb ground italian sausage
  • 1 clove garlic pressed and finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper (optional) if you like green peppers
  • 1 Jar of Ragu or your favorite tomato sauce (get the medium size sauce if you like less sauce, large for more)
  • 1 small can of mushrooms pieces and stems (more if you like more mushrooms)
  • 1 1/2 cups Ricotta cheese, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups Cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Parsley Flakes (optional for color and texture)
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 lb Lasanga Noodles cooked and drained
  • 12 oz Shredded Mozerralla (Sliced is OK too) more cheese if you like the cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Italian Seasoning (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Large Mixing Bowl for Cheese Mixture
  • Pot for lasagna noodle boiling
  • Strainer to Drain
  • Tongs to handle noodles
  • Wok or Large Saucepan for cooking meats and veg
  • Large Pan or Casserole for baking
Directions:
  • Chop Onion, Press and Chop Garlic, Fresh Parsley and Green Pepper (optional), mushrooms and add a splash of olive oil and a tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons butter if you dont have olive oil to a pan on the stovetop at medium heat and cook veggies until carmelized
  • Cook hamburger meat and sausage, season with garlic powder/garlic salt, tony satcheries or some salt and pepper, italian seasoning and cook meat until browned
  • Drain the grease
  • Add meat, sauce and veggieso a big pot to cook them and simmer for about an hour stirring regularly. Add wine, and other seasonings to taste during cooking.
  • Mix Cottage Cheese, Riccota Cheese, Fresh Cut Parsley, Parmesan Cheese and eggs and salt in a separate dish until well blended.
  • In a 16x9 Baking Dish, Lasagna Pan, or whatever spray some non stick baking spray or smear with some butter, add a cup or so of sauce and spread on bottom of pan.
  • Add half the cooked noodles in a layer, add, half the ricotta cheese spread and spread out, then one half the sauce, then on half your cheese then repeat (if you want more layers reduce for the extra layers)
  • Bake for about 45 minutes on 350 - make sure you bake on a baking pan because if you dont your lasagna will overflow onto the oven, the baking sheet will catch overflow. After 45 minutes sick a fork in the center and make sure the lasagna is hot all the way through.
Enjoy!

Note:

  • You can do however many layers you want depending on how deep your lasagna pan is and how much ingredients you have just make sure you up the cooking time if you up the ingredients.
  • This recipe assumes premade sauce like Ragu, if not using that make your own sauce how you like and put in the veggies then go from there.
  • The veggies and meat are part of the sauce layer.
Please feedback me on this recipe if you make it.

What do you hate about it?

Some people dislike the heavily flavored tomato sauce. My roommate hates anything that has a lot of them in a particular food. And like Ghan's, I do agree we need more additional cheese. :p

The recipe that I am going to put up uses ricotta, parmesan, cottage, and Mozzerella cheese. The one in the picture had a little Habanero flavored Cheddar on top but cheddar is real greasy and will grease up the lasanga if you use too much.

The Tomato Sauce that you use you can make however you want. You could use other meat besides hamburger, ground chicken and turkey are alternatives, you can make a tomato sauce as weak as you like it or put less in. It will just make the meat layer more meaty and drier.

How do you make the sauce's flavor weak? Masking it by adding more of something else?

Have to find a good vegetarian or seafood lasagna recipe for you. Those dont have tomato sauce necessarily.

I would suggest waiting for my vegetarian and seafood lasagna recipes then as they dont use tomatos.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
