Homemade Four Cheese Lasagna With Italian Sausage And Beef

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375°

Cook pasta according to package instructions, rinse, and set aside. (Lay them separately on a cookie sheet)

In a heavy saucepan brown the ground beef and Italian sausage (remove from casing and break up with a fork) Mix in onion, red peppers, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until browned well, drain fat off.

Add pasta sauce, tomato paste and season to taste with all-purpose blend. Add Italian seasoning, cover, and simmer on med-low for 30 minutes. (For optimal flavor, cook sauce the day before)

*OPTIONAL I add 1 tsp sugar

While sauce is simmering, in a mixing bowl combine 1 bag of the mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, Romano, and Parmesan with a beaten egg, spinach, and parsley

Add 1 c. meat sauce to the bottom of the baking dish, top with lasagna noodles, spoon on cheese mixture. Repeat. Finish with noodles topped with sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese.

Cover and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and add additional cheese if desired and bake another 10 minutes until lightly golden brown and bubbly.

Allow resting 20 minutes before cutting.

*I did have about a pint of sauce left. Put in the freezer bag for a quick lunch one day!

ENJOY
