This year it is just Angel, Kaitlin, Laura(K's friend) and I. Momma wanted lasagna so I am making everything from scratch.(Except noodles). The sauce I started at 3 o'clock. I browned veal, beef and pork in a a skillet. Added in onions, celery and carrots, salt and pepper. I added a quart of chopped tomatos and two tablespoons of garlic along with two bay leaves, oregano and thyme. Then I whisked a small can of tomato paste into 4 cups of beef stock. Brought everything to a boil, reduced heat and simmered for two hours. That's the meat sauce. Let it simmer a long time to bring out the flavors.
Next I built a cheese filling of Ricotta, Provolone, Mozzarella,Romano cheese, egg, milk, garlic and basil
Boil the noodles till al dente then build lasagna. Sauce then noodles then cheese then noodles and so on.
Top with Mozzarella
Into the oven for an hour at 350 and garnished with a breadstick, parsley and a little fresh basil.
TIP: If your lasagna is this thick put a cookie sheet under it while in the oven to catch any boil over.LOL
It was deliciosco!!
