Tip of the Day May 8

Today is a special meal for Audrey's daddy. Audrey made him lasagna. For this recipe we decided on a no-fail recipe, the one from the noodle box.
Barilla Four Layer No-Boil Lasagne
  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 15-oz container ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 jars sauce
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray. In medium bowl, beat eggs, stir in ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella, and the Parmesan. Spread 1 cup of sauce on bottom of baking pan. Layer 4 sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, half of browned meat, 1 cup of mozzarella, and 1 cup of sauce. Layer 4 sheets, 1/3 of ricotta mixture, and 1 1/2 cups of sauce. Layer 4 sheets, the remaining ricotta mixture and browned meat, and 1 cup of sauce. Layer 4 sheets, the remaining sauce, and remaining 1 cup of mozzarella. 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.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Crack eggs
  2. Mix cheeses with egg
  3. Lay out lasagna
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Brown meat
  2. Assemble ingredients
  3. Help with cheese mixture and lasagna
  4. Place lasagna in oven
Audrey's daddy really likes this meal so she wanted to make it for him. It is not the easiest meal for Audrey to make because the directions are not something she likes to follow. With a slightly older child this would be much easier. I think next time we are going to try one of those easy ravioli lasagnas. Because daddy was home during prep we have a brief glimpse of mom.
