This week's theme:  Smells Delicious!


 Now this recipe is really a 2-for-1 deal, since we don't use...
...dare I say it ??

Canned sauce!

 OhEMMGee.. No she Diiiidiiiin't!!!


So, Now that that is out of our systems, we start with HOMEMADE Spaghetti Sauce. 

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

 1lb Italian Sausage
1lb Ground Beef
1 Medium Onion, chopped
1. Brown these items in a skillet.
2. Drain off fat & put in large pot.
Then add:
5 15 oz cans Tomato Sauce
1 small can Tomato Paste
 1/2 Tomato Sauce can of Water
 2 Tbls. Parsley Flakes
2 Tbls. Cornstarch
1/2 Tsp. Minced Garlic

 2 Tsp. Italian Seasoning
2 Tsp. Basil
4 Tsp. Green Pepper Flakes
1-1/2 Tsp. Salt
2 Tsp. Sugar
2 Tsp. Oregano
 3.Stir Well.
4.Simmer on low heat for several hours until mixture thickens some.
(Usually this is 4-6 hours...Good taste takes time!)

This makes alot! Recipe can be cut in half, 
or half of sauce can be frozen in small containers for several months!

Now for the MAIN ATTRACTION!!!

Homemade Lasagna 

1. Combine:
1 Cup Cottage Cheese
1 Egg
2. In a 9x13 pan, Spread enough Spaghetti Sauce to just cover bottom of pan. 
Next, a layer of noodles; then the cottage cheese/egg mixture; then a layer of Mozzerella. 
3. Repeat layers as many times as pan will hold.
(Be careful not to fill TOO full!)

4.Sprinkle with Parmesan.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, uncovered.
6.Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting into squares to serve!

I LOVE this recipe & every time it's made, EVERYONE wants seconds! 
That homemade sauce just leaves your mouth watering for more...

Serve with some Garlic bread Ceasar Salad...

& Enjoy!
