Fred's lasagne

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Ground beef, lean
2 tablespoons Olive oil
3½ cup Tomatoes
16 ounces Tomato sauce
1 large Onion, diced
1 \N Garlic clove, minced
1½ teaspoon Oregano
¼ teaspoon Rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon Basil leaves, fresh, crushed (or 1/4 tsp dried)
½ teaspoon Msg
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 cup Mushrooms, sliced
½ pounds Lasagne noodles
1 pounds Ricotta cheese
½ pounds Mozzarella cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Saute ground beef in hot oil until meat loses its pink color. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, seasonings and mushrooms. Mix well; cook slowly about 2 hours or until sauce is thickened. Cook noodles following directions on package; drain, rinse in cold water and separate. In a buttered 3-quart baking dish make two layers of the noodles, meat sauce, ricotta, slices of Mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese, in this order, using about half of each for each layer. Bake in 350 F oven 30 minutes or until bubbly. Serves 6 to 7.

NOTE: Pepperoni may be added to meat sauce if desired. You may double the recipe for sauce; use half in making the lasagne, as above, and serve the remainder, cooked down until quite thick, in a sauce boat along with the lasagne.
