It's Bake for Family Fun Month - Family Favorite - Lasagna!

Image result for images for lasagnaEarlier this month, I shared with you how February is, "Bake for Family Fun Month"! I said; "This sounds like a fun thing to celebrate, so along with sharing some of my favorite baking recipes this month, I thought it would be fun to ask you to share your favorite recipes, too! If enough of you share recipes, I'll print them up in a doc which you will be able to download . . . our first-ever grandma's cookie jar cookbook!"

I shared a recipe for my favorite flaky biscuits - with a delicious cinnamon touch! (You'll find this recipe at the following link.) So, today I thought it would be fun to share with you some additional family favorite recipes . . . 
  • Cinnamon Pumpkin Soft Pretzels (These are really easy to make!) - you'll find the recipe at this link.
  • Homemade Mini Pizzas (Lots of fun to make with grandchildren!) - you'll find the recipe at this link.
  • Chocolate Chip, Peanutbutter, Oatmeal Cookies (A grandchild favorite around this house!) - you'll find the recipe at this link.
All tasty family favorites! I also want to share with you my recipe for lasagna! It is super simple and delicious!

Ingredients - 
  • 1lb browned ground beef
  • 16 oz spaghetti sauce
  • 8 cooked lasagna noodles
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • shredded Parmesan cheese
Directions - 
  • Brown the beef and add the sauce - simmer together.
  • Bring water to boiling and cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.
  • Grease bottom of 13x9 pan and place four lasagna noodles side-by-side, overlapping edges a bit.
  • Top with half of ground beef/sauce mixture - spread to cover noodles evenly.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese - to taste, but I put a nice layer of cheese!
  • Top with cheddar cheese - again, to taste.
  • Repeat with another layer of noodles, followed by remaining beef/sauce and then topped with cheeses - final topping is Parmesan to taste.
  • Bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes
  • Enjoy!
This recipe is easy, and is one you can let your grandchildren help you prepare - they can add the cheeses . . . great fun for all of you! 

When I make lasagna, I typically make two . . . it is so easy to double this recipe. If you do this, use a foil pan for the second lasagna and then have your grandchildren help you deliver it to a neighbor, shut-in, or just to someone whose day you decide to brighten . . . in a most tasty way!

Now, I've shared five recipes with you . . . please comment below and share your favorite recipe . . . if I get some, I'll put them together in a document so you can use them in your kitchen!
