A few days ago I was sort of craving lasagna, but I didn't want to make a "white sauce" that they use in lasagna in England, and I didn't have any cottage or ricotta cheese that they use in lasagna in America. So I made up this recipe all by myself, and we all thought it was VERY good. Sorry if the directions are a bit brief for you - I can expound if anyone is interested. And no pictures. I really wasn't thinking "blog post!" when I made it, just "dinner!"
Shari’s Lazy Lasagna as made 3-1-11
Brown 1 lb turkey* with ½ minced onion and 1/3 c bacon bits* (maybe less). Pour over 3 T of red wine; allow to reduce. Add 1 15oz can diced tomatoes and 1 15oz can tomato sauce, a dash of sugar, a dash of pepper, a good pinch each of basil and Italian seasoning. Simmer.
Meanwhile, boil 1 lb (10 cups) of egg noodles. Drain. Add 2 T butter, 2 oz cream cheese, and ½ c of parmesan cheese. Add 2 beaten eggs.
Spoon a little sauce on bottom of 9x13 pan. Top with noodles. Top with sauce. Bake 20-30 minutes at 350*. Top with 1 lb grated mozzarella; bake to melt. YUMMY!
* ground beef would do as well as turkey. Just here I can get the turkey cheaper.
* REAL bacon bits, not the nasty fake stuff. Or just crumble a couple of slices of cooked bacon.
