Serves/Makes:6 or more people, how hungry?

  • 8 oz (224 grm). package lasagna noodles
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). ricotta cheese
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). mozzarella cheese
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 large jar pasta sauce or marinara (avoid chunky sauce and meat flavored)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) oregano (optional)
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). ground chuck (optional)
  • 2 pieces of alumnium foil
  • Boil noodles and have dry on clean towel (listen bachelors!).
  • In metal or glass baking pan (ceramic is not recommended), line one piece of aluminum foil inside pan.
  • Have it neat without too many wrinkles.
  • Brown ground chuck over low heat and crumble into tiny pieces.
  • Line first row of lasagna noodles.
  • Then pile on ingredients in this order:
  • Ricotta cheese
  • light layer of sauce
  • 2nd row of noodles
  • mozzarella cheese
  • light layer of sauce
  • 3rd row of noodles
  • beef and a little cheese
  • oregano
  • 4th row of noodles
  • light layer of sauce
  • Montery jack cheese
  • Now..........cover with second piece of foil and slit a few lines through it.
  • Place in preheated 350 degree (175 C.) oven for 45 minutes--have a glass of wine and listen to music. Be patient--this baby needs time to develop.
  • Pull cover foil off and let the top bake for another 10 or so minutes until the cheese is melted or brown to your liking.
  • Pull out and let cool for a bit....then dive into it.
Friends and family will love it, and single women adore you. I am a longtime bachelor who loves to cook because fast food stinks and home cooking remedies the heart.
