Very Belated Recipe Wednesday!

Here's what you'll need:

(4 servings)
4 lasagna noodles
1/2 pound ground beef
1 clove of garlic
3 cups spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 container of ricotta cheese
1 egg (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start out by browning your hamburger meat in a skillet and cooking your noodles. I used a Corningware casserole dish so if you're using something bigger you are going to need more stuff. When hamburger is cooked through, drain and add to spaghetti sauce. Cook noodles for approx. 8 minutes, drain.

While the noodles are cooking/cooling, mix cheese mixture by combining 1 cup mozzarella, 1/4 cup parmesan, 1/2 container of ricotta and 1 egg. The egg is optional because it basically serves to combine the cheeses. 

Once everything is done start layering your greased dish. Start with spaghetti sauce on bottom, noodles, then cheese mixture. Repeat. Cover with sauce one last time. Then use 1 cup cheddar and 1/2 mozzarella to cover top. Sometimes I do all cheddar too, so just use whatever you have on hand.

Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Then turn broiler on for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on it because I let mine go a little long this time. Then just let it settle for a little while and enjoy! 

Also I made this yummy cake! I love when the strawberries come into season! 

I hope yall have a wonderful weekend!
