Italian Lasagna (with meat) Sep 28 By Amanda Formaro | Beef, DINNER RECIPES, Pasta, Pork My FIL absolutely loves my lasagna. I wish that I could take credit for putting it together, but that would be a lie. many years ago I had followed the recipe on the back of the Creamette lasagna box and was sold. However, each time I wanted to make it, I just looked on the back of the box, always throwing the one away before it. Well one day I was in the grocery store picking up the noodles. I looked on the back of the box (I always bought the groceries I needed from the recipe as well) and it had VEGETABLE lasagna on the back. WHAT?!?! Oh no!! I checked almost every box on the grocery store shelf, but alas, no Italian Lasagna recipe. ACK! So I hoped and prayed that I still had a box in the cabinet. I was lucky, there was still half a box of noodles on my shelf at home, so I immediately cut the recipe off the box and taped it to a piece of paper. it’s tattered, it’s splattered, but it’s tried and true and holds a special place in my recipe binder. :) And now I will share that lost recipe with you as I think it’s the best recipe around. And speaking of “best recipes”, over at My Lasagna Recipe there’s a post called No 1 Best Lasagna Recipe and I was very pleased to see that their recipe is almost identical to mine. Theirs contains nutmeg, which I’ve never tried, but maybe next time I make it I’ll give theirs a whirl. I will say that I tried their noodle soaking method rather than boiling them and it made a world of difference, so I thank them for that! But for now, I think this is the best lasagna recipe ever. :) Italian Lasagna 1/2 of a (1-pound) package lasagna, uncooked 1 lb bulk Italian sausage 1/2 lb ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 (28 oz) can tomatoes, cut up (undrained) 2 (6 oz) cans tomato paste 2 tsp sugar 2 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp basil leaves 1/2 tsp fennel seed 1/4 tsp pepper 1 (15 oz) container ricotta cheese 1 egg beaten 1 tbsp parsley flakes 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup sliced pitted ripe olives (I omit this, I hate olives LOL) 4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese 3/4 cup grated parmasan cheese
