You ever think about taking two of the easiest dishes and combining them into one?
When the holidays come around here in casa de common sense, we get real creative around here in ways I can include Hyperdiva in making food. This year for girl scouts, they are really introducing cooking for a badge, so I’m really looking for ways to have them help me.
This is one dish you can include your kids in cooking, get them to eat it, and have enough for leftovers(if they don’t love it too much lol).
2 Lbs ground chuck, turkey, or beef
1 can tomato sauce
1 bottle ketchup
2 tbsp onion powder
1 large tub cottage cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 tbsp pepper
1 cup colby jack cheese
Oven ready lasagna
Heat oven to 350. Cook meat until browned. Drain fat. Mix in tomato sauce, ketchup, and onion powder. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, add cottage cheese, eggs, cheddar cheese, and pepper. Mix together well. Set aside.
In a greased baking dish, spoon in a small amount of sauce. Then begin layering the lasagna: Noodles, cheese mixture, meat sauce. Once at the top, cover with cheese(I had left over cheddar to mix with the colby jack to make it extra cheesy).
Bake for 45 minutes. Serve after cooling off with a salad. I garnished the lasagna with sweet relish and ketchup.
It was a hit, and easy to make. It let HyperDiva and I bond, and I’m pretty sure this recipe with be used at her girl scout meeting for a patch they are required to do.
In any event, enjoy it, and let me know what you think!
