My mother used to make the BEST lasagna!!!!
She is smiling down from heaven now, as I again attempt
to even come close to the greatness that is Mom's Lasagna!
I inherited her cookbooks, which include some handmade notebooks
with recipes hand written, typed and cut out of magazines.
This particular recipe was typed out, but I also have it hand written on an envelope.
I had asked her, about 20 years ago, for the recipe and she wrote it
down. I still have it and used it last night.
I made a few changes, but was true to the spirit.
First, I browned some italian sausage and ground bison.
Then I used these ingredients to create the meat sauce.
Which simmered for about 30 minutes.
The cheese sauce is where my mom stood out from
other recipes. Cottage cheese, egg, parmesan and parsley created
the ooey gooey goodness.
Layer the noodles, cheese sauce, meat sauce then slices of
mozzarella. Then repeat the process.
What I like to do is create 2 of these and put one
in the freezer for a quick meal down the road.
I have one of these babies waiting, plus leftovers for
lunch for the Dutchess and myself.
30 minutes in the oven, then 15 minutes to rest.
The sausage and the cottage cheese brought back the most memories.
All the flock loved this, so another generation knows the
goodness that is Grandmum's lasagna!!!!!
The flock was fed, and they LOVED it!
Oh yeah, I whipped up some watermelon palettes with
the watermelon we had left over from the lake.
