I have been making this recipe for years after growing up enjoying it in my Mom's kitchen. Yesterday my lunch break was spent at home whipping up this dish for us to enjoy over the next few days. A great thing in the Madeley household is leftovers - we love them! This will easily feed a family of 4-5. The simple recipe is below.
1 lb. lean, ground beef
1 28 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1 7 1/2 oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix
2 cups ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese
8 oz. wide lasagna noodles (uncooked)
Brown eat in skillet & drain. Add next four ingredients. Bring to boil and shimmer for 10 minutes. While simmering, in a small mixing bowl, mix ricotta cheese, egg, and Parmesan cheese. Spread a little of the meat sauce in the bottom of a greased 9x13 dish. Begin alternating layers as follows:
Layer of raw noodles, 1/3 meat sauce, half of cheese mixture, repeat and then top with last 1/3 of meat sauce.
Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese on top and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or until noodles are tender). Let stand and serve.
