Lasagna Sauce Recipe!
So it’s been requested for a sauce for lasagna or spaghetti type of sauce. So here it is, I did include meat in this sauce because I always use meat in everything! You can however remove it and start with sauce if you chose. But this is for a lasagna and meat is required!
- 1 lb ground beef (73/27)
- 3 c water
- 4 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 3/4 tsp Nusalt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 2 tsp garlic powder (this can be adjusted to your taste)
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 packets splenda
- 28 pepperoni
- 3 – 4 tbsp parmesan cheese
Cook beef and drain the grease, I went as far as to rinse it. I wanted it to be rinsed good so no grease in my sauce. I also wiped out the pan and got all the grease out of it too. Put meat back in the pan and add the water and stir, let the water warm up and add tomato paste, once it’s cooked down some add the seasonings and stir and simmer on low for about a half hour or so.
For Lasagna Noodles you’ll need this Recipe for “Faux” Egg Noodles. I use an 8×8 pan to make these noodles and then I make my lasagna in the same pan. I made four noodle squares for my lasagna, you can do a three layer though.
Also for cheese you need a bag of mozzarella, I don’t know how much of that I used. I have have huge 8 cup bag and just grab a huge handful for each layer.
- 1 container of Ricotta Cheese
- 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
Mix all the ingredients well and refrigerate till ready for use.
To make your lasagna start with your pan you cooked the noodles in, I prefer to use non stick foil in it. I start by adding sauce to bottom of the pan. I add some Parmesan cheese and mozzarella, then lay the noodle down, add the ricotta mixture to the noodle and spread a thin layer. Then add the sauce in a layer add Parmesan and mozzarella again and then noodles, repeat layers until your pan is as full as you want it.
I baked for about 30 minutes, I turned on the broil at last few minutes just to melt that cheese on top, but not brown it too much.
