Last week, after watching multiple YouTube videos and searching through some recipes, I decided to try to make the "Lazy Man Lasagna" that I saw here. As you may imagine, I used her recipe as a guide and put my own spin on it. The ingredients that she shows are:
1 lb. rigatoni
16 oz ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozarella cheese
jar of sauce
350 degree oven for up to 30 minutes.
Using her recipe as a base and using what I had on hand.
What I used was
1 pkg of Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
15 oz. of Ricotta Cheese
4 oz. Mozzarella and 4 oz. of Parm
Homemade Marinara Sauce that I cooked up in my slow cooker.
I also added in about half a pound of ground beef.
I mixed half of the Mozzarella and Parm with the Ricotta Cheese and added some Italian Seasoning. Then mixed the cooked noodles in with it. Added some sauce, some of the noodle/cheese mixture, some ground beef and then repeated. I put what was left of the cheese on top and cooked on 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I turned out great and was a big hit with my family. Now that I know everyone likes it, I will be making more to go in the freezer.
