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.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
