This lasagna is a great meal for a large family or left overs the next day.
Let’s Get Cooking!
You will need:
12 Lasagna Noodles cooked and strained
1 pound of Italian Sausage
1 pound of Ground Beef
1 Bell Pepper diced
1 small Onion diced
1/4 cup of Fresh Basil Leaves chopped
2 Garlic Cloves minced
2 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning
4 cups of Mozzarella Cheese
2 cups of Ricotta Cheese
Shredded Parmesan for topping
4 cups of Pasta Sauce (can be homemade or store bought)
Optional: (1/2 cup of Mushrooms)
In a large skillet, brown Italian sausage and ground beef until done with 1 tablespoon of oil. When beef/sausage is almost done, add Garlic, Pepper, Italian Seasoning, Onion, Basil and Mushroom if using. Cook until meat is done and vegetables are almost tender. In a large casserole dish, place a layer of 3 lasagna noodles, some meat/veggies, some sauce and on top some cheese (ricotta and mozzarella). Repeat these layers 4 times until all the ingredients are used. Top the lasagna with extra mozzarella and parmesan. Cover and bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle the top with some fresh chopped parsley. Serve with Garlic Bread and Salad.
