Introduction: Batchelor Lasagna.

About: Bytesize articles instead of a trilogy in one post.
This was the result of a private amateur iron chef challenge. We wanted something cheap, quick, and interesting for supper. On sale. you could probably get all the ingredients for under five to six dollars. Add a large can of mixed vegetables or just green peas and you have a meal for four or two hungry people. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Warning: This is not your traditional lasagna. Though most real Italians use what is at hand. That is what we did. Enjoy!

Step 1: What's Needed:

1 bag mozzarella cheese.
1 pack bologna.
1 large can pasta sauce
1 package of crackers (unsalted or lightly salted work best)
Other ingredients to taste.

1 microwave
1 deep dish 8x8 that can be used in a microwave.
1 spoon to spread sauce.
1 microwave cover (optional)

Step 2: The Process Begins.

Spoon some pasta sauce in the bottom of the dish. Spread evenly. this will prevent any sticking as we are told.

Step 3: Crackers As Pasta Layer

Now cover the sauce with crackers. I like to put a lot on the bottom layer to make sure the lasagna will come out easily and absorb all the juices of the meats cooking.

Step 4: Meat Layer.

Now it is time to lay down the Bologna (pronounced baloney in America) one level thick.

Step 5: Cheese Layer.

Add the cheese generously.Make sure it is spread evenly though.

Step 6: Do It Again.

Repeat the last four steps until the dish is full or you run out of ingredients. Ours was two layers thick. Be sure to remove the spoon before cooking!!!!

Step 7: Microwaving.

All microwaves are different. I would recommend cooking in more than one step so that it is not overdone or you have a mess in the microwave.Using a loose cover is a good idea.  I think we did it in two steps for a total of three minutes. Your mileage way very.

Step 8: Done. Lets Eat!

Once the cooking is done, you might wait a minute till it cools down a bit before removing from the microwave. A touch of cilatro or italian parsley  would give it more appeal.  Then go ahead and eat!!!
