Today I’m going out on a limb and doing a recipe that takes a bit of time. I know, I know, don’t panic. It’s all still very easy, and the results are Mwah! fantabulous.
1lb ground beef
1 jar Ragu
9 Lasagna noodles
12 oz. carton cottage cheese
16oz package mozzarella cheese
Pick a glass pan as big as your microwave will hold. Grease the bottom a bit with oil and set it aside. Boil 9 lasagna noodles according to directions. While they are boiling, brown a pound of hamburger, then drain and put back in the pan with a jar of Ragu. Heat to bubbling.
In the pan, put down 3 noodles. Top with 1/3 the meat mix, 1/2 carton cottage cheese and 1/3 mozzarella cheese. Repeat two more times, with the top layer being just meat and cheese. Cover with a Saran Wrap type of cover, venting at two corners and cook for 13 min on high.
If you like your lasagna browned on top, toss it in the oven on broil for a few minutes before serving.
While your lasagna is in cool down mode, let’s make some Italian Margaritas.
1 shot Amaretto
1/2 shot triple sec
small splash lime juice
Sweet and sour mix
In a shaker combine the liquors and lime juice and 2 shots of sweet and sour mix. Shake it shake it baby, then pour into a tall glass.
Ready? Scoop up your lasagna, get a sip of your margarita, put your fuzzy pink slippers up and lets learn to speak Italian – complete with hand gestures!
