Classic and Simple Meat Lasagna - Review by karen
I never know how many stars to leave when I make changes. Just for personal preference, I'd give it 4 stars because I don't care for the cottage cheese/egg layer, and leave that out. Usually when I make my own lasagna I don't precook my noodles, and we prefer shredded chicken over ground beef. Other than that, this is pretty close to how I make mine! I probably use more cheese, and sometimes cheddar in addition to the mozzarella. For variety, if we have veggies that need to be used I might add sliced zucchini and/or spinach as well. But this recipe is a good, solid, simple lasagna, and you should try it!
A family-pleasing version of lasagna is made with lean ground beef, whole wheat lasagna noodles, prepared sauce, and plenty of mozzarella for a dish that's easy yet hearty.
Start with a skillet and finish with a slow cooker. A saute of onion, garlic and ground beef is simmered with tomato and oregano, then layered in a slow cooker with raw lasagna noodles and a creamy blend of cottage cheese, Parmesan and mozzarella.
A creamy blend of cottage cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan and eggs is seasoned with garlic powder, oregano and parsley, then stuffed into magnificent jumbo shells of pasta. Simply blanket with spaghetti sauce, sprinkle with Parmesan and bake.
Seasoned diced beef is pan fried, then cooked with cream of potato soup, butter, and milk; and served with fettuccini.
This is an alternative to bland old spaghetti squash. It resembles baked Rigatoni and Lasagna. Kids also loved it! Give it a try!
No-mess meatballs! Just pat the meat mixture into a pan, cut, and bake!
Wonderful directions for preparing eggplant if you've never done it before. The eggplant is layered in a large pan with marinara sauce, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan cheese. This it 's baked until the cheese topping is golden.
Meatloaf with Italian flavors is baked inside hollowed-out zucchini boats, and topped with spaghetti sauce and melted mozzarella cheese.
Make a creamy chicken and wine sauce in your slow cooker, then add cooked spaghetti and Parmesan cheese for a nice dinner that mostly makes itself while you do other things.
