Okay, I have not been able to find the recipe anywhere, so I'm doing this completely from memory. Bear with. :)
1 lb. ground beef 1-2 cloves garlic, minced 1 medium sized onion, chopped 1 pinch oregano 16 oz. can of tomato sauce 8 oz. can of tomato paste 3 medium tomatoes, diced
Brown ground beef with garlic, onion, and oregano; drain. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil (medium/medium-high heat), then turn low and simmer until the tomatoes are soft and peeling.
This would be a good time to fix...
8 oz. package of lasagne noodles, cooked.
16 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated 16 oz. ricotta cheese
Okay, in a lasagne pan, layer noodles, ricotta, sauce, mozzarella, topping it off with whatever sauce and mozzarella you have left. Bake at 350F degrees for about thirty minutes, til the cheese on top is melting and bubbling golden brown.
As always, adjust to taste. Damn, I did remember it all. I hope. Good luck!
A pound of firm tofu, crumbled, instead of ground beef works just as well. Cook it like you would the ground beef (with some olive oil) until it's nicely sauteed and the onions and garlic are cooked through. The tofu absorbs the garlic, onion, and oregano flavors, making a milder and lighter dish that's still pretty tasty.
#1: noodles, sauce, ricotta. Repeat as necessary to fill baking dish. #2: use a large baking pan- the sort of thing you might make a sheet cake in. #3: combine meat and herbs (I use a /lot/ of dried rosemary, oregano, and some parsley in addition to <lj user=") in saucepan: brown meat, then add to sauce, paste, .
#4: preheat the oven to 350. You're not really BAKING the lasagne so much as you're melting the cheese on top of it, honestly: everything inside it has already been cooked, at this point. You're just making it gel, so to speak. Leave it in there 'till the cheese starts to brown, on top.
