A sheet of pasta, a brushing of bechamel, a layer of bolognese and ricotta, then another pasta layer, etc.

Plenty of cottage cheese, unless, of course, you just don't love America.

I have nothing against bechamel but that sounds like French lasagna.

Ingredients

1 disposable pan
1 small pot of sauce, thick
12-15 meatballs depending on how many you already ate
1 tub of ricotta
1 bag of moz
1 box of noodles

Slap that shiat together and throw it in the oven. It's lasagna. How complicated can it be?

Serves 3 with leftovers or one hungry farker.

No recipes for Subby, but I once had a coworker who made an incredible lasagna that contained cottage cheese, ground beef, Italian sausage, and lotsa mozzarella.

I was going through some old cookbooks from the fifties and found a lasagna recipe using hotdogs. It wasn't great. I like to imagine that were a few soldiers in WW2 that were looking forward to the war coming to an end so they could get back home and enjoy that hot dog lasagna.

Also in the 50ies any recipe calling for any spice hotter than black pepper was considered "Creole".

I knew a woman of that generation that used Campbell's tomato soup instead of marina, because even Ragu was too spicy.

I suspect that she was also afraid that spices might make her rip her clothes of and do "foreign" things.

Seems like a lot of lasagnas that I have go way too heavy with the ricotta. A mouthful of ricotta is not a pleasant experience for me.

reminds me of this:

freakanomics did one an episode on bananas.

It was a luxury when it first came to North America. They found lots of recipes that used bananas.  Some were not appealing.

"Jenkins has a rather interesting banana recipe of her own, passed on from her mother.

You take a peeled banana, you put mustard on it. You wrap it in a slice of ham, and then you bake it in a cream sauce. And I've tried it on two husbands and neither of them could eat it. They thought that was just nasty."

Start with dried noodles, not fresh.
 
2021-01-17 11:16:02 AM  
Mom's.

The recipe was lost in one of our many moves so we wing it. Includes cottage ceese. And we swear by the Barilla oven-ready pasta.

Seriously, when I have to take something big to a potluck, I sometimes tip a 13 by 9 pan of Stouffer's lasagna into my own baking dish, cover it with cheese and bake. Everybody raves about my lasagna.

Preach. My grandmother called anything cooked in tomato sauce with bell peppers and a pinch of cayenne pepper "Creole". She loved "Shrimp Creole" - the aforesaid sauce with shrimp boiled in it for an indeterminate period of time. Served over Minute Rice. It was rubbery, nasty crap.

Came to say this.

Here's Marcella's non-paywalled lasagna recipe

I received Marcella's "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking" cookbook as a gift and having never made lasagna used her recipe, which is fabulous...but it's also one of the most labor-intensive recipes out there.  It's an all day affair.

My lasagna has evolved over the years; I prefer using a marinara/arribiata sauce rather than bolognese, I do start out with the mirepoix.  Adding sugar to a tomato sauce is blasphemy; carrots and the tomatoes themselves will add enough sweetness.  I do use bechamel and a ricotta mixture as well as a little mozzarella and parmigiana. I usually add sauted spinach as a layer and chunks of sauted Italian sausage if I'm making it for meat eaters.   Shostie's reference above to Giada de Laurentiis' recipe looks really good.

The trick is to add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of dry oregano to your jar of Ragu.   Mmm ::chefs kiss::

drjekel_mrhyde: Chesse ravioli in place of one or more layers of noodles


this is not a bad hack. but you will only love it in proportion to how much you love eating a big bowl of those specific ravioli.

however, many sins can be hidden by a blanket of extra gooey, melty CHEESE in there......

OK, so, I gotta ask - this is the second thread on "how to make lasagna" in two days. There are tons of good lasagna recipes out there, ready for implementation.

Is there a viral marketing push for lasagna or a common lasagna ingredient, or is there a single Farker just losing their damned mind over trying to make a lasagna, or what? What am I not getting here?

Just use regular lasagna noodles. Your sauce and cheese probably have enough moisture that you don't have to boil your noodles or use fancy pre-cooked noodles. Assemble it, cover it with foil and bake it. Remove foil for the last 20-30 minutes.
