Today kicks off our first post in Grandma Peggy’s Kitchen.
Fresh from the oven, this category features down-home cookin’ and great eats and treats. Most recipes are my Mom’s. She passed away in 1984. But she left a rich treasure of wonderful, warm memories. Many include family time around the dinner table. So I’m sharing some of her best recipes here, in Grandma’s Kitchen.
Let’s get this party started with Grandma Peggy’s lasagne recipe. A family favorite! It takes some time, but the effort is mm, mm, good!
Grandma Peggy’s Lasagne
Sauté 1 onion chopped, 3 cloves minced garlic and one pound of ground meat. Add 1 can tomato paste and three (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce. Add about 1-1/2 cups water. Add 1 bay leaf, 1 tsp. oregano, ¼ tsp. basil, 1 Tbsp. vinegar, salt and pepper and simmer for at least one hour.
Combine 1 pint ricotta cheese, one beaten egg, ½ tsp. salt, 2 Tbsp. parsley flakes. Cook one 11-oz. pkg. lasagna noodles in boiling water 15-20 minutes. Drain.
½ Parmesan cheese, ¾ lb. Jack cheese
Place noodles in a greased baking dish. Spread with ricotta cheese mixture sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and Jack cheese sliced thin, and then spread sauce. Repeat layers. Makes about three layers.
Bake 30 – 45 minutes or until heated through in a 350 degree oven.
See? I told you it’s gonna be a Happy Monday!
