Recipe: Lasagna

Author: Jodi Stevens
Serves: 18-24 (6-8 for 3 meals)
As I begin my freezer cooking journey, you will start to see the numbers go up in my recipes. The idea behind freezer cooking is to make 1 for now, 2 to freeze for later, so you can have some time out of the kitchen. This recipe will make 3 lasagnas.
  • 24 oz Lasagna Noodles
  • 45 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 cup minced onions
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 3 jars (26 oz each) Spaghetti Sauce
  • 12 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  1. Cook lasagna noodles according to the package instructions then drain.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the ground beef, onions, salt and garlic salt until meat is brown.
  3. Drain excess fat. Add spaghetti sauce to mixture, and bring to a simmer.
  4. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  6. Grease three 9″x13″ baking dishes.
  7. Place a layer of lasagna noodles in the bottom of each dish.
  8. Spread a layer of ricotta cheese, a layer of mozzarella cheese and a layer of meat and sauce over noodles.
  9. Repeat layers twice.
  10. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and reserved mozzarella.
  11. Bake 1 lasagna for 1 hour while you prepare the remaining two for the freezer.
  12. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
