Ingredients

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 pound sausage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 bottles of tomato sauce of your choice (or try the pasta sauce from this site.)
  • 1 package (16oz) lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 8oz. cream cheese (soften)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Directions

1. chop onions and garlic, get ingredients ready.

2. Saute onions and garlic until soft, about 6 minutes.

3. Add both kinds of meat and brown.

(When meat is fully cooked it should look like picture below.)

4. Add spaghetti sauce to browned meat and keep warm, letting the flavor combine.

5. Put water on to boil in large pot, while that is heating up, combine Ricotta cheese, cream cheese and sour cream in large mixing bowl.

6. Beat on medium speed until it is smooth. (The softer the cream cheese is the easier this will be. Cream cheese tend to be lumpy when mixed.) Set aside.

7. Once water is boiling, add noodles in small batches, making sure that they soften enough to be submerged totally in the water.

8. Follow directions on box for cooking, cook until Al Dente. Once they are done, drain and set out on paper towels out of the way until cool.

9. in 9″x13″ glass dish, cover bottom of pan with sauce and meat, follow with one layer of noodles, overlapping a bit.

10. Next, cover with all of the filling.

11. On top of filling do a layer of sauce, a layer of noodles and another layer of sauce. (At this point lasagna can be refrigerated overnight.)

12. Cover with aluminum foil and cook in a 350 over for 1 hour.

13. Remove tin foil, add mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheese and cook another 10-15 minutes.

14. Prepare to be hugged, proposed to and adored. They’ll never know how easy it is to do, they’ll think you’re magical. And you know what? You are.
