How to Make My "Famous" Lasagna
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large frying pan, brown ground beef with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Drain meat when done and add back to the pan. Add the spaghetti sauce - just enough sauce to make the meat wet, but you don't want more sauce than meat. Simmer until you are ready to layer the lasagna.
- You are ready to layer your lasagna! (Use a lasagna pan deep enough for about 3 layers.)
1.) Spoon a small amount of meat mixture on bottom of pan so noodles won't stick.
2.) Layer 3 lasagna noodles topped with a layer of the meat mixture.
3.) Now carefully add a layer of the cheese mixture, lightly dropping spoonfuls and smoothing it out.
4.) Next add a layer of shredded cheddar - enough to coat the white sauce - and then sprinkle with some grated parmesan cheese.
5.) Repeat previous layer 2 more times. (You should end up with the top layer of the lasagna being the shredded cheddar cheese.)
6.) The last layer is the shredded mozzarella. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the cheddar, just enough to cover.
