Meat Lasagna
Recipe courtesy George Stella / StellaStyle.com

Prep Time 30 min / Cook Time 50 min / Serves 12


SHOPPING LIST
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

CHEESE FILLING
  • 15 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery and onion, and cook until slightly tender.
  2. Add the ground beef and cook until browned. Drain off the excess fat with a spoon or turkey baster.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, garlic, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and simmer for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the cheese filling together in a bowl, using only half of the mozzarella.
  5. Fill the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish with the meat filling and top with the cheese filling.
  6. Cover the top with the remaining 8 ounces of mozzarella cheese.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the top starts to become golden and bubbly.
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing (the lasagna will hold together better).

HELPFUL HINTS
You can also make this with half ground beef and half crumbled Italian sausage for even more flavor.

My Notes...
  • I added mushrooms to the vegetable mixture.
  • I also put the cheese filling between two halves of the meat mixture.
  • The asparagus is oven roasted. Used the very simple recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
