Lasagna

Today we didn't get home until about 8:00 so I wanted to pre-prepare dinner. Naturally that meant we would be eating lasagna.

Boil some lasagna noodles. Saute some onions and garlic in a saucepan, add a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce (8 oz). Mix in some spices. I put in some pizza seasoning from Penzey's (fennel, oregano, basil). Let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

Take a casserole dish, put a spoonful of tomato sauce and spread it around. Then put down a layer of noodles. On top of that, put more tomato sauce, some dollops of ricotta cheese, and a layer of mozzarella cheese (I used a 6-cheese Italian blend). Put another layer of noodles, another layer of sauce, and more of both cheeses. Repeat until you run out of stuff, and top with a nice thick layer of the mozzarella cheese.

This is where I covered it with saran wrap and put it in the refrigerator.

Then later, bake it at 350 for 30 minutes. All done!
