Julie's Lasagna

I want to take up a few lines in my post to wish Dayna a great big, fabulous
She has blessed my life for a whopping 25 years now and I love her to pieces!!!
She is such an amazing person, I really wished that you
could all know her personally, but since most of you can't
you'll just have to take my word for it!!!

Hope that your birthday is full of yummy
CAKE, Ice Cream and" all around great FOOD!"

Lasagna was one of DAYNA'S favorite foods growing up. She requested it for dinner every year on her birthday. SO...since she doesn't live at home anymore, I am dedicating this post to her on her 25th birthday!!! Now she can make it for dinner at her house~

My hubby isn't a fan of "cooked cottage cheese" so we have had to make a few "adjustments" to the ORIGINAL RECIPE'S that you see for lasagna, after trial and error this is what I came up with. My family adores my lasagna and slurps it right down. I love lasagna any which way I can eat it...and this recipe is no exception, I LOVE IT....it's SCRUMPTIOUS!

Julie's Lasagna

1 lb ground beef, cooked and seasoned with your favorite seasonings, drain grease
1 lb ground sausage, cooked and drained
1 package lasagna noodles, cooked and drained according to package instructions
4- 5 c grated cheese (your favorite...we like cheddar and Monterey Jack on ours)
1 jar thick traditional spaghetti sauce (I like most generics OR PREGO)

After meat is cooked and drained, combine with spaghetti sauce and heat until warm. Spray 9x13 baking pan with pan coating, place one layer of lasagna noodles on the bottom of prepared pan. Layer meat mixture, cheese and noodles until you fill the pan. Make sure your top layer is covered in plenty of cheese (mmmm...thats what makes it good...all that cheesy goodness). Bake covered for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with a green salad and garlic toast and you'll almost feel as though you've "gone out" for dinner...except for the fact that there isn't anyone there to clean up after you.

Have a Happy Birthday Dayna!
