Mike's Lasagne

Recipe By:
Serving Size: 12 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories: Italian Pasta Main Dish


1ea Large red onion, chopped
1lb Lean ground beef
1lb Sweet Italian sausage
4 ea Garlic cloves, pressed
24 oz Tomato sauce
6 oz Tomato paste
1/2 c Dry red wine
1/2 c Water
1tOregano, dried
1/2t Black pepper
1lb Low fat ricotta cheese
1 lb Mozzarella cheese, thinly
-sliced by machine
1c Shredded parmesan cheese
16 ea Extra wide lasagna noodles


Get two large frying pans. Spray with the non-stick PAM or similiar. Place the beef in one, the sausage in the other. As the meat starts to change colour, add 1/2 the onion and garlic to each pan. Saute till meat is brown and crumbly in both pans. They will never get done at the same time. When brown, put all into one "Really Big" frying pan, dutch oven or whatever. Add the tomato sauce and paste, wine, water, oregano, pepper and a bit of salt if you are a salt lover. Stir, cover and cook for a couple of hours.

Cook the lasagana noodles cooking as per package directions. After they are cooked, rinse a couple of times with cold water to cool them hot puppies down. Grab a deep (2-3 inch) 9 X 13 in casserole dish or pan.

Criss cross a layer of noodles for the first layer, followed by about 1/3 of the sauce, then 1/3 of the ricotta and then 1/3 of the mozzarella. Do the pasta, sauce, ricotta and mozzarella 2 more times till gone. Spread the parmesan over the top. Cook in a pre-heated 350 oven for 60 minutes.

One of my favorites, as well as mom's. Freezes well and is great on a cold winter night when you want something warm and hearty but don't feel like cooking. Serve with hot sour dough garlic french bread and a tossed green salad.
