Yes, there will be a simple recipe, but first, this lily bloomed yesterday. I am so excited. I've never tried to grow this kind of lily. When it came up this spring, I couldn't remember what it was and almost pulled it up. Glad I didn't. This was my present for Man-mom day last year.
That is actually a huge red flower. Love it, love it!
Okay, so last night, I made dinner and I made a lasagna for tonight. Rob commented on how good it smelled when I took it out of the toaster oven and I told him how easy it was and he dubbed it Lane's lazy lasagna.
My family loves it.
1# ground beefs
1 jar spaghetti sauce (I like Newman's Own, Sockarooni flavor)
9 lasagna noodles
1 medium container cottage cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1T parsley flakes
1 bag grated mozzarella cheese
A handful of grated parmesan
Cook the noodles in water according to the package. Brown and drain the ground beef. Reserve a half cup of sauce for later. Pour the rest of the jar of sauce into the meat. I like to let this simmer for a bit, at least 15 minutes to get the flavors all worked in together.
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, the egg, salt and pepper and parsley flakes.
In a 10x10 casserole dish, put a spoonful of the reserved sauce and spread it around to cover the bottom of the pan. Add a layer of noodles. I cut the ends off the noodles to get them into the pan. Three will cover the pan, and then I stack the cut off ends on top of that.
Spoon meat sauce onto the noodles and spread. Spoon cottage cheese mixture on top and spread. Add a thin layer of mozzarella. Repeat for another layer.
Top with another layer of noodles. Spread with the remaining reserved sauce and sprinkle with a generous layer of grated parmesan. Bake at 350* for one hour.
Don't tell the Italians how easy that was.
Just wanted to point out that the same day that the gang fight in Waco was on the news, the TX state legislature was debating an open carry law (the right to legally carry an exposed weapon, for example a handgun in a holster on your hip... just like the wild west). Somehow, the news is missing the irony of that. I get it. Lots of people want the right to carry a handgun. But, do you really want your neighbor to have that right? Let's face, it. That guy's a freak!
Everybody have a great Tuesday. It's another wonderful day to make a living, right?
