After sleeping well into the afternoon on Friday, our son made our family favourite lasagna using my Dad's special recipe (scroll to end for recipe).
A couple more photos to celebrate our son being Home for the Holidays. My husband would rather I fetched the knives and forks while our son photobombs with 'the' finger. Yep that's our boy.
Lasagna (my Dad's special recipe)
1 lb extra lean ground beef
48 oz Heinz tomato juice (has to be Heinz)
1 bay leaf
1 - 5.5 oz can tomato paste
Fry ground beef until cooked through, add tomato juice, bay leaf and tomato paste.
Cook on low until done (simmer ~ 2 hours).
1 box oven ready noodles
1 lb sliced mozzarella cheese (we used grated)
1 lb cottage cheese (2 small containers or 1 large container)
Grease lasagna pan to prevent sticking.
Assemble 3 layers as follows:
Sauce, noodles, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese
Alternate directions for the noodles, lengthwise, crosswise, lengthwise
Bake at 375 F for 50 minutes (cover with tinfoil for first 45 minutes)
Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting.
Serve, dig in and enjoy.
