pinch tips: How to Use a Meat Thermometer



45 Min


1 Hr


1 lb
ground beef
1 lb
ground italian sausage
1 medium
onion finely chopped
1 large
can tomato sauce
1 can(s)
tomato paste
4 clove
garlic finely chopped
palmfull of italian seasoning (don't be shy)
1 pkg
lasagna noodles
large carton of cottage cheese
1 pkg
mozarella cheese (i buy the costco pack just in case)
1 pkg
parmesan cheese (small)

Directions Step-By-Step

Brown ground beef, sausage, and in a large pot and drain. Set aside.
In pot add tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. (I would use a lid or it will get messy)
Preheat oven to 350 and start cooking noodles in a separate pot according to directions on the box.
While sauce is simmering and noodles are boiling, add cottage cheese, and egg (already beaten) to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
When sauce looks a darker shade of red and smells amazing you know its time to add the beef/sausage mixture to it.
starting with a thin layer of meat/tomato mixture layer in this order: Meat sauce, noodles, cottage cheese mixture, mozarella. Repeat once more until you get to the top layer (when the pan is full) and top layer should be mozarella and sprinkle parmesan on top. Bake 60 min.
