I've been making so much lasagna lately, John has taken to calling me Garfield. I was always more of a Heathcliff girl myself, but I accept this nickname along with my new-found love of lasagna. It is so easy to make! Who knew?
I make a few different varieties, but my favorite incorporates mushrooms, spinach and either ground turkey or Italian sausage. Depends on my mood. Ricotta, mozzarella and sauce are all lasagna standards.
You just boil the noodles until al dente, and then layer away. I always start with some sauce in the bottom of the pan, then lay out three noodles, some more sauce, veg/meat and cheese, and so on. Your top layer is noodles, sauce and then you finish with some mozzarella and parmesan.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing (I only sometimes follow this rule). You really can not screw this up.
