Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier for Christmas.
They all thought it would be super fun to pick a recipe, every week, from the book and all of us cook it and then blog about it. They want to call it The Pioneer Woman Meets Country Girl.
Lauren said... "I thought it would be like we were all doing something together.
Add in PW and a little butter and everyone is happy!"
This week we chose LASAGNA
Heather, Ashley and her children came home for the weekend..
we wanted to do something fun... together.. so ...
Heather and Ashley went to the store and picked up all of the ingredients..
I stayed home and played with my grand kids... it was a very tough job but someone had to do it...
Then we started cooking.... even EMBER got to help!!
In a large skillet or saucepan, combine ground beef, sausage, and garlic.
Cook over medium-high heat until browned.
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, 2 tablespoons parsley, basil and salt.
After adding the tomatoes, the sauce mixture should simmer for 45 minutes
while you are working on the other steps.
In a medium bowl, mix cottage cheese, beaten eggs, grated Parmesan,
2 more tablespoons parsley, and 1 more teaspoon salt. Stir together well. Set aside.
Arrange 4 cooked lasagna noodles in the bottom of a baking pan, overlapping if necessary.
Spoon half the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Spread evenly. Cover cottage cheese with a layer of mozzarella cheese. Spoon a little less than half the meat/sauce mixture over the top.
Repeat, ending with meat/sauce mixture. Sprinkle top generously with extra Parmesan
It looks and smells YUMMY!!!!
Either freeze, refrigerate for up to two days, or bake immediately:
350-degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until top is hot and bubbly.
We covered our Lasagna tight with Foil and
put it in the FREEZER....
Heather, Ashley, Jayson and the kiddos will enjoy their Lasagna dinner in
Cedar City sometime this week...
Stan and I are hoping Justin and Missy
and hopefully several others will come over for dinner this week!!
I will let you know if it tastes as good as it smells...
