Kid-Made Lasagna


8 uncooked Lasagna noodles

1 lb browned ground beef

1 15oz container ricotta cheese (we like sargento)

1/4 cup grated parmesan

3 cups grated mozzarella

1 egg

1/2 cup water

1 can diced tomatos (oregano, basil, garlic)

1 jar spaghetti sauce

2 tbsp italian seasonings


Preheat oven to 400*F

 In a large bowl combine spaghetti sauce, tomatos, and water. In a second bowl whisk egg then combine with ricotta, parmesan, and seasonings. In a 9x13 spread 1.5 cups of sauce over the bottom, Set 4 noodles on top and press into the sauce. Spread ricotta mixture over the noodles. Spread ground beef on next. Sprinkle with half the mozzarella. Spread 1.5 cups of sauce next then 4 noodles on top of the sauce. Spread remaining sauce over the noodles and top 1 cup of mozzarella. Cover with foil.

Bake for 45 then remove from heat. Top with remaining mozzarella and loosely cover with foil. Let stand 15 minutes.

 Perfect for kids to help in the kitchen. My 3yr old did everything but browning the ground beef and putting in/taking out of the oven.
