Mom and Daughter Cooking Show Season 1 Episode 6 Lasagna

Today we layered up some lasagna for dinner. The recipe that I prefer was on the back of the box before it became "Oven Ready Lasagna." I'm going to share that one here, as I couldn't find it online at Barilla. The method that we used is the same with using boiled noodles if you prefer those.

Barilla Four Layer No-Boil Lasagne



Ingredients:



1 box (9 oz) Barilla Lasagne (Oven Ready Lasagna), uncooked

2 eggs

1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese

4 cups (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese (divided)

1/2 cup (2 oz.) grated parmesan cheese

1 lb. bulk Italian sausage or ground beef (cook, crumble and drain)

2 jars Barilla Marinara Sauce



Preparation:



Preheat oven to 375F. Spray baking pan (about 13x9x3 inches deep)* with non-stick cooking spray. Remove 16 Barilla Lasagne sheets from box. DO NOT BOIL. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella and the Parmesan.



*If using a 2 inch deep pan, make three layers to avoid possible boiling over. Use same amount of filling and 12 uncooked sheets. Spoon half jar of sauce on bottom; layer with 4 sheets, half ricotta mixture and browned meat, and remaining sauce from first jar. Add 1 cup of mozzarella. Layer 4 sheets, remaining ricotta mixture and browned meat, and half the second jar of sauce. Top with 4 sheets, remaining sauce, and 1 cup of mozzarella. Bake as directed below.



To assemble:



When layering lasagne, slightly overlap sheets. Lasagne will expand to the edges during cooking. Spread fillings to edges to seal in and cook the lasagne during baking. Layer in the following order:

1. Spread 1 cup of sauce on bottom of baking pan.

2. Layer 4 uncooked sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, half of browned meat, 1 cup of mozzarella, and 1 cup of sauce.

3. Layer 4 uncooked sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, and 1 1/2 cups of sauce.

4. Layer 4 uncooked sheets, the remaining ricotta mixture and browned meat, and 1 cup of sauce.

5. Layer 4 uncooked sheets, the remaining sauce, and remaining 1 cup of mozzarella.



To cook and serve:



Bake, covered with foil until bubbly, 50-60 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting. Recipe makes 12 servings.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap. Study Questions Week 10 When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others?  When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person? When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments?  God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise?  Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#
