Intro: Batchelor Lasagna.
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 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!!!
