Oven Lasagna ala Meller


I got this recipe off of a Skinner Pasta box and have used it many times since.  I have tweeked it some with preferred cheeses, tomato sauces/rotels and sauteed onions and jalapenos.

Here are the ingredients (plus a sm can of Rotel and Green Chilies) and a 9 x 13 baking dish.



First of all I brown the ground beef and then drain all but just enuff grease to sautee the onions and jalapenos in.  Then I add back the browned burger and all of the tomato sauces or rotels.  Then I cover and simmer very slowly for 30 minutes or more.  Just make sure you don't reduce all fo the liquid from the meat mixture.







While the meat mixture is simmering, I make up the cheese mix using 16oz of cottage cheese, one egg, 8oz of graded pepper jack (or cheese of your choice) saving half of the pepper jack for the final topping.  Mix cottage cheese, egg and half of pepper jack together and salt and pepper to taste.  I don't use any Parmesan in my recipe but it can certainly be added if you choose to.



Now with meat mixture, cheese mixture, oven ready lasagna noodles and baking dish ready begin putting this together and ready for the oven.

First layer is a cup or slightly more of meat sauce (don't spare the liquid either)
Then top that with a layer of lasagna noodles





Followed by another cup of meat sauce and half of the cheese mix.



Now reapeat that layer with another layer of noodles, a cup of meat sauce and the rest of the cheese mix.



Finally a layer of noodles, a cup (or the remainder, if room) of meat sauce then grate the rest of the pepper jack on top and cover with foil.



Place in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, then remove foil and bake another 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
 


Here is basic "Virginia's Easy Lasagne Recipe" that I started with years ago.

That's a good southwestern switch on the traditional Italian style; sounds tasty.

Looks larrapin good,lol, but seriously it's nothing compared to the way I make mine. Never seen cottage cheese in lasagne, perhaps recipe hasn't made it down under. I make my own cheese sause with Colby cheese. Wouldn't it be good if I could try yours and you mine???

I just made 2 curries, a silver beet and lamb shoulder cop curry and a aloo gobi curry which is potato and cauliflower curry. I'll start a new thread and show pics.

Later gator

Russ, I tried it one time with Colby Jack and Ricotta but went back to Cottage and Pepper Jack - - - the other was good but not my favorite.
