Delicious (and easy) Lasagna

This is a wonderfully delicious and fantastically simple recipe I got from a co-worker. One day, the office was celebrating someone’s birthday and Debbie brought lasagna. Oh. My. Gosh. Was it good! So long, Stouffer’s!!!

For those of us who tend to be domestically challenged when it comes to the kitchen, I have even better news. It’s super-duper easy to make. Of course, I have no other lasagna-making experience to which I can compare the process. You’ll just have to trust me. If I don’t mind making it, it’s easssyyy.

I would have taken a picture, but it was already hacked into before I could get my camera.

Ingredients (to make one that will fill a 9x13 cake pan):

1 box of lasagna noodles (I can usually only fit 9 in my pan)

2 lbs of ground chuck

2-3 small jars of regular Ragu sauce

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon oregano

1 bag of shredded parmesan cheese

1 bag of shredded mozzarella cheese

2 bags of the shredded mixed cheeses (the mixture that includes Colby, cheddar, etc.)

Pre-heat over to 350.
Cook noodles according to directions. Set aside on some paper towels.
Cook ground chuck. Drain. Return to skillet. Add the Ragu sauce, garlic powder and oregano. Simmer on low 20-30 minutes.

I lightly spray Pam on the bottom of my pan and then add a layer of noodles, followed by some of the meat mixture, followed by some of each of the cheeses. Then I just repeat the process until my pan is full. I like for the mozzarella to be on the very top.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until bubbly.


P.S.  This girl is keeping her fingers crossed for a snow day (well, it will probably be more ice than snow, but it'll do).
