That sounds good.  I make my lasagna differently.  Since my husband likes to make it in a 9x12 pan, here's what we use:

3 pounds of ground sirloin

to season and cook the meat you'll need

adobo goya

2 envelopes sazón

2 or 3 tbsp sofrito (onion, garlic, bell pepper, oregano, cilantro)

1 tsp tomato paste

1/4 cup water

1 package of lasagna

1 jar ragu sauce (I like the 4 cheese type)

1 bag sliced Swiss cheese

either

2 bags sargento (or any brand for that matter) 4 cheese italian

or

1 bag shredded mozzarella

1 bag shredded cheddar


boil the pasta until cooked al dente

while that is boiling, cook the meat for about 10 minutes or until fully cooked

Once the meat and pasta is cooked, start building the layers...  I can usually make 2 layers of meat and 3 of cheese...

pasta

sauce

meat

mozzarella and cheddar or Italian blend

pasta, sauce, meat, more mozzarella and cheddar or Italian

pasta, sauce, mozzarella and cheddar or Italian then on top a layer of Swiss cheese

now since the pasta and meat are cooked, put it in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Let it cool for about 5 minutes before serving.


Oh BTW I'm having something easy tonight, hamburger helper and a little white rice because my picky eater wont eat anything unless its noodles or rice...

Those are very interesting variations on lasagna that I've never seen. Thanks for sharing them!

I've always mixed my ricotta with an egg - I think that it helps bind it so it doesn't get runny...

Tonight - well I have a small steak for the hubster whenever he gets home.  I think that DD and I will be decadent tonight and have cheeseburgers and salad

I'm not sure.  My oldest is pretty picky, so it's always a gamble whether or not he'll even try what I make.  Lately he's been saying, "Its poop!" before even trying it.

Yea, so I read this post and realized it was after 9a and I hadn't figured out what I was making and I probably needed to set something out.

So I'm making Chicken Piccata, which is a new recipe.

 1/2c all-purpose flour

1/2t salt

1/4t pepper

1lb chicken breast, sliced thin and pounded into cutlets

3t butter

1 lemon, halved crosswise and seeds removed

2t capers

Sauce:

3T butter

3T all-purpose flour

1/2c hot chicken broth


Shake flour, salt, and pepper in a plastic bag. Add chicken pieces in batches to coat. Heat butter over medium heat in a skillet and brown each side of the coated chicken. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the chicken and add capers. Remove to a platter and set aside in a warm place. To the same pan add butter for the sauce and mix with flour to make a roux. Gradually add chicken broth and allow thickening. Strain sauce, if desired, and serve spooned over chicken.

Prep: 20 min    Cook: 10 min    Serves 4 to 6



I'm just trying to figure out how to pound the chicken since I don't actually have anything to do it with.
