Tempt My Tummy Tuesday….Lasgana -YUMMO!

by Lisa on April 20, 2009

Hello everyone and welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. My sister, Lana, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, restaurant reviews, and anything food related that you want to share. You know the rule of a blog carnival, please mention the blog or TMTT in your post and link back to us. Don’t forget to use Mr. Linky, down below.PLEASE DO NOT HOST YOUR OWN Tempt My Tummy Tuesday with Mr. Linky. Thank You.
(If your post was DELETED, go HERE for an explanation.)

We had lasagna at our LifeGroup Sunday night. It was OH SO GOOD. My friend, Jimette, made it. She said she used TWO POUNDS of CHEESE. Oh my goodness! It was YUMMO! It reminded my that I have not shared one of my favorite lasagna recipes with my Tempt My Tummy Tuesday friends. I have two favorite lasagna recipes. One is my Green Chili Lasagna, the other is the one I am sharing today. This recipe comes from my buddy, Lori. She has it in , of course, our church cookbook. (You know how I love my church cook books!)

  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 T. basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 medium cans diced Italian -style tomatoes
  • 2 (6-oz) cans tomato paste
  • 1 (10-oz) pkg. lasagna noodles
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 2 T. parsley flakes
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 c. Ricotta or cottage cheese
Brown meat slowly in a large skillet; drain. Add garlic, basil, salt, tomatoes, and tomato paste; simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occassionally. Cook noodles in large pot; drain and rinse. Combine Parmesan cheese, parsley, eggs, salt, pepper and ricotta or cottage cheese in separate bowl. In greased 9×13 casserole dish layer noodles, cheese mixture, 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 of the meat mixture; repeat layers ending with the meat sauce on top. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting to allow layers to set.

Recipe Notes: You can assemble early; refrigerate. Be sure to allow 15 minutes or so longer in the oven. This can also be assembled and frozen. Cooking time will be longer if not thawed out.

Also, I use the cottage cheese and oven – ready lasagna noodles. I have never had a problem with the oven-ready noodles.

You will LOVE it!

One last thing, one of our Tempt My Tummy Tuesday gals is starting a new blog carnival. She emailed me about it, and I thought it sounded like fun. I wanted to pass on the info.

Nicole at Paige’s Place is hosting a new blog carnival called “Five Ingredient Fridays“. It will be a recipe exchange type of carnival. Nicole will even be having a contest for the best recipe, each week. FUN! So, go and check it out. It sounds like something we TMTT ladies will love.

We love Lasagna in our house! Thanks for hosting!


Deanna April 20, 2009 at 8:40 pm

I think I will make your lasagna and my caramel pound cake for our Sunday lunch this Sunday!


Karen April 20, 2009 at 8:49 pm

Lasagna is one of my fave foods! Your recipe is very similar to the one my family loves….we like to add mushrooms and zucchini sometimes for a change.


Melissa April 20, 2009 at 8:51 pm

SHOOT! I forgot to put Salisbury Steak Meatballs next to my name! DUH!

By the way, I am now craving lasagna! LOL


Phoebe @ Cents to Get Debt Free April 20, 2009 at 9:04 pm

My oldest can never have enough lasagna, or Italian food for that matter. We’ve dubbed it all “Nicholas food”. Never made lasagna with Italian Sausage, though. Thanks for the recipe–and hosting. 🙂


Amy @ Finer Things April 20, 2009 at 10:12 pm

Lasagna… I think that’s one of my love languages. 😉


Pami April 20, 2009 at 10:38 pm

Lasagne is so delightful! A perfect meal if ever there was one! I think about you every Tuesday : ). (Even when I can’t come over)


Amanda @ Mommy's Idea Book April 20, 2009 at 11:33 pm

Lasagna is one of our favorites and it absolutely has to have lots of cheese. Yummy!


Omah's Helping Hands April 20, 2009 at 11:49 pm

MMMM, okay, I have to quit visiting you and Lana back to back! Now I’m really hungry. 😉 Your recipe sounds much better than the one I have. Definitely am going to have to try this one. Hubs will be happier too I’m betting. Have a great week!


Nicole April 21, 2009 at 12:01 am

Hey Lisa! Thanks again for helping me get the word out.

Your lasagna sounds absolutely wonderful!!! Can’t wait to try it.

Lori April 21, 2009 at 7:12 am

This looks exactly like a lasagna recipe that an Italian friend of mine makes!! I’ve tried it and it’s out of this world good! 🙂
Have a great day…aren’t you having more tests tomorrow? If so, hoping all goes well!!


Songbirdtiff April 21, 2009 at 7:38 am

Yum! I can’t wait to see what everyone else is cooking, too!


Janet April 21, 2009 at 7:58 am

Yummy! I have been craving lasagna. I need to gather the ingredients to make it.


A happy heart at home April 21, 2009 at 8:10 am

That sounds like a wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing it and for hosting this recipe carnival. 🙂



Sherry April 21, 2009 at 8:18 am

Yum! WE love lasagna!! 😀 I tried some in the crockpot a couple of weeks ago and it came out great! 😀


Sharon April 21, 2009 at 8:25 am

Love the recipe! We make that once in a while because ours is SO loaded with cheese….but that doesn’t make it a bad thing, right?! LOL! Thanks!!


Verging on 40 April 21, 2009 at 8:58 am

Happy TMTT!!


Samantha April 21, 2009 at 9:59 am

Love Lasgana ! Thanks for sharing and thanks so much for hosting.
Keeping you in my prayers for your tests tomorrow. God bless and have a great day !


Michelle April 21, 2009 at 10:36 am

Mmmm I love lasagne! And the two pounds of cheese? That sounds like my kind of recipe.

I’m with you on the no-bake noodles. I’ve never boiled a noodle a day in my life prior to making lasagne, and I hope I never have to. I like skipping that step! 😉


Jennifer April 21, 2009 at 11:42 am

We love lasagna but I haven’t made it w/regular lasagna noodles in ages. I generally just make it w/macaroni noodles-I’m so lazy that way!


Fishwife April 21, 2009 at 1:05 pm

We had lasagna this weekend too! Homemade garlic bread too!


KCShipe April 21, 2009 at 1:09 pm

I am linking up late today because I had Bible study at my house this morning and it was CRAZY and one kid fell and broke his nose (blood everywhere).
I had a great recipe that I really wanted to share though.
I always appreciate Tuesdays because of all the great new recipes I discover. Thank you so much.


Melissa April 21, 2009 at 1:36 pm

Ooh, I love making lasagna.


Raise Them Up April 21, 2009 at 1:43 pm

Lasgana is one of those things that my mom makes to perfection, but I haven’t got right yet. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I can’t wait to give it a try! 🙂


heresmycuplord April 21, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Yeah! I found you and linked my post. Stop by for some of my husband’s etouffee after you’ve finished that yummy lasagna. I’m all about the YUMMO, and I love to cook Italian.



newlyweds April 21, 2009 at 3:55 pm

I agree 2 lbs of cheese how could you go wrong, lol!


Pam April 21, 2009 at 4:09 pm

We love any kind of lasagna! This sounds great.


Under the Florida Sun April 21, 2009 at 4:39 pm

This is such a fun thing to do!! I don’t remember how I stumbled over here, but I love it. I jumped in for my first one today.


Jerri - Simply Sweet Home April 22, 2009 at 12:01 am

I love lasagna. Your recipe sounds great!

Thanks for visiting me. I don’t know if you noticed, but my link to your site was missing. (someone pointed this out to me today) I added them to my original post, but for some reason it did not publish it. (Weird!) Anyway, my links have been re-added. Thanks for hosting this great event each week.


Liz April 28, 2009 at 8:18 am

Shoot….I forgot to put the title of the recipe in my link. Can I edit it somehow?
