This is a simple lasagne recipe that I prefer to traditional lasagne, and my kids love it, too.
- 1 medium onion
- a few cloves of garlic (minced)
- 1 pkg ground turkey
- 3 or 4 turkey sausages (pork are fine too)
- 1 can of plain hunts tomato sauce
- 1 small can of diced tomatoes
- 4 tbsp fresh basil
- 1 tbsp oregano (dry)
- salt and pepper to taste
- parmesan or romano cheese
- 9-12 lasagne noodles
Cook the onion. Add the turkey and sausage once the onion is soft. After the turkey and sausage are almost cooked add the garlic and cook a bit. Add oregano and half the basil, some salt and pepper too. Add the tomatoes and cook again for ten minutes. Add the tomato sauce and let simmer for half an hour or whatever you have time for! Add the rest of the fresh basil right at the end.
Now just assemble the lasagna. Put a little sauce in the bottom of the pan, add the first layer of noodles, the sauce, some parmesan to cover the sauce and a layer of mozzarella and so on and so on and so on! Typically I make three layers.
