Simple Lasanga Freezer meal~ Makes 2 or 3 pans!!!
I am so sorry if my recipe's are hard to follow...so many are my very own and I am one of those horrible people that just throws this and that together until it tastes good (at least by my preference). I am funny because I like to make A LOT of my stuff from scratch ...but then will buy my Spaghetti Sauce or Enchilada sauces and Dr. them up a bit. I buy so much in bulk, it seems to be faster and more lucrative (and I use less dishes which is ALWAYS good).....
I build my Lasagnas in the FOIL disposable pans...that way...if I ever feel prompted to take someone in my neighborhood, a friend or any one in need a Meal...they won't feel responsible to wash & bring it back to me.
2 or three Tin foil Lasagna baking Pans
Up to five pounds a half and half browned sausage and hamburger together
2 boxes Lasagna noodles (I use the whole wheat fiber fortified ones and my kids don’t know the difference)
Huge Container Cottage cheese
2-3 Slightly beaten eggs
Parsley to tasted
5 pound Bag Mozzarella cheese, shredded
4-6 Jars Spaghetti sauce Emptied into giant bowl with added sugar, garlic salt, & Italian Seasonings to taste
Fresh Spinach ( if you want)
Do not cook the lasagna noodles. Combine the cottage cheese, slightly beaten egg, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Grease foil baking pan(s). Cover bottom with thin layer of sauce.I use a Cooking cup to measure my sauce. Layer noodles (do not cook them, break them to fit if needs be)then Meat and Sausage,Cottage cheese mixture,(spinach if you want) Mozzarella and sauce. Top with another layer of noodles,then Meat and Sausage,Cottage cheese mixture,(spinach if you want) Mozzarella and sauce Top with another layer of noodles, then cover with a thick layer of spaghetti sauce, and sprinkle Mozzarella over the top. Cover with extra heavy foil. Label and freeze. Makes 2-3 9x13
To serve: Thaw. Bake covered for 45 to 60 minutes at 375°. Uncover, top with more Mozzarella cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
