Yummy Lasagna

We have been looking for a lasagna that is easy to make but full of flavor. We found this one and tried it out yesterday. It is yummy!

8 ounces lasagna noodles

1/2 pound lean ground beef

1/2 pound Italian sausage

2 28 ounce cans spagetti sauce

1/2 grated Romano or Asiago cheese

1 egg

1/4 cup dried basil

1 clove garlic

1 package sliced pepperoni

8 onces mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/2 pound ricotta cheese

1/2 pound cottage cheese

1 Preheat overn to 375 degrees

2. In large skillet over medium heat, cook meats

3. In medium bowl, stir together ricotta, Romano, egg, basil and garlic

4. Coat bottom of a 9x13 bakind dish with a thin layer of spagetti sauce. Place 3 or 4 noodles, overlapping edges. Cover with half of browned beef, half of pepperoni, and 1/4 of mozzarella cheese. Repeat sauce, noodles, ricotta, meat and cheese layers. Layer sauce and noodles again, and pur remaining sauce over all, being sure to cover the edges. Top with remaining mozzarella.

5. Cover pan with foil and pierce foil 3 or 4 times with fork to ventilate. Bake 45 minutes, remove foil, and bake 15 minutes more to brown the top. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
