Garfield’s Favorite Food – Lasagna

An Italian layered pasta dish made as a casserole. Easy and wonderful to make ahead and freeze.

When I was growing up Lasagna was the go-to dish to bring to the home when the new baby came home. It was also the dish to bring to the home of the grieving before or after a funeral.

My Family Lasagna
*1 lb. pork sausage, cooked, drained
*1 lb. beef chuck, cooked, drained
2 lg. cloves garlic, grated
2 TBS. oregano
2 TBS. parsley
1 TBS basil leaves, crushed
1 ½ c spaghetti sauce, traditional
1 container Ricotta cheese large
3/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese – Reserve 1 cup for top of casserole
2 eggs
1 TBS sugar
1/2 pkg. lasagna noodles, cooked, drained (about 14 wide noodles)

Simmer in large pot, combine cooked meats, sauce, spices. In oblong casserole dish layer meat mixture, layer of noodles, meat mixture, cheese mixture; repeat – last layer is noodles; then sauce; then the Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses until full. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with salad and garlic bread.

*Sauté in heavy skillet with 1 TBS olive oil

    Once you find a place with a good menu the next step is to learn to understand it. You won’t make a good impression on your date if you order something and are then shocked to find out what it is when it gets to the table. Decide beforehand what you’re going to order and learn how to properly say it in Italian. Then, find out what Italian food your date likes and pick out some recommendations from the menu beforehand and learn how to say them. When it comes time to order and you’re reading off your selection from the menu like an Italian food connoisseur you’ll really impress your date.*
