Step 11: Gather Your Ingredients for the Cheese Filling...

If we can find Polly-O brand ricotta within 20 miles of our Podunk town in Oklahoma, you should
be able to as well. Sure, cottage cheese has been used in lasagna dishes for quite some time, but
please consider using the good stuff.

Gather your ingredients. See next step.
i just made it❤
<p>Hi, the last time I TRIED to make lasagna, it came out as one big glop on everyone's plate! Did I perhaps not let it sit long enough before I served it?</p>
mmm lasagna, my favourite!
Thanks, Mike! :-) I appreciate it!
Awesome. My favourite.
Thank you, Caarntedd! :-)
Looks very tasty.<br>Lasagna is one of my family's favorite dishes. It's usually the first thing our kids ask me to make when we are all together. Many years ago my Aunt mentioned a recipe that did not require cooking the noodles. I decided to give it a try and have never cooked my noodles since. You don't need to buy a special brand or type of noodle to do this and no one has ever been able to tell the difference. It cuts out the cooking step, you just have to snap off a corner or two when layering. <br>I personally do not like my tomato based pasta sauces to be sweet so I add no sugar and actually add lemon juice to counter the sweetness of the tomato products (again, just personal preference). I've never used sausage chopped up into the sauce, I think I will try that with my next batch (Thanks for the idea). And thanks for the tip on the Chop Stir (yes I do need one, I do want one!!).<br>One last tip, I use sliced provolone as the top of each cheese layer, it helps when you are spreading on the next layer of sauce.
Hi there! <br> <br>Many thanks! I keep telling myself that I am going to try the 'no cook' method. You've convinced me!
I am sending this link to my son! He LOVES lasagna! Thanks for sharing! Have a super day! <br>Sunshiine
Many thanks, Sunshiine!
You could also replace Ricotta by just using a b&eacute;chamel sauce (butter flour and milk).<br>In this case, there would be no need to pre-cook the lasagna sheets as the b&eacute;chamel sauce wood water down the pasta while cooking.<br>Just my two cents.<br>Micka&euml;l
I think on the first page onder the meat base, you meant to put 2 cloves of minced Garlic instead of onion. Nice looking lasagna BTW.
Indeed, thank you so much for letting me know. I've corrected it. <br>I appreciate your help! :-)
<br> That really does look very good <sub>(hungry now)</sub><br> <br> L<br>
