Lasagna Formaggio

This is an excellent recipe if you are craving Italian food! It's also cheap at about $1.50 a serving, which is great for big family on a tight budget.


9 lasagna noodles
1 32oz. container of ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 jar marinara or pasta sauce

1. Start by preheating oven to 350. Start boiling noodles. I like to add a dash of olive oil and a few shakes of salt to the water.

Boil until noodles are cooked but still a tad firm. Drain.

2. While noodles are boiling mix together ricotta cheese, eggs, 1 cup of the mozzarella and spices.

3. Next layer a few spoonfuls of pasta sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.

4. Top the sauce with 3 noodles.

5. Spread a spoonful of cheese mixture lengthwise down each noodle.

6. Layer sauce on top and repeat with the noodles, cheese and sauce layers. Top off with remaining mozzarella and parmesan. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.
