Hey guys! Gymnastics tonight, so I made an easy semi-homemade baked lasagna with a pork and beef Bolognese Sauce. So easy and delicious. Here is the simple recipe. Happy eating!
Baked Lasagna with Bolognese Sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
Your favorite jar of plain marinara
red wine- a couple of glugs
a handful of fresh herbs- I used basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, and marjoram
cheese… see below
Preheat oven to 350.
Using a large saucepan, heat oil, saute’ onion and garlic until onion becomes translucent, about 4 minutes. Add your meat and lightly brown while occasionally stirring. Mix in your jar of marinara, wine, and fresh herbs. Simmer over medium heat. Let cook for 15-20 minutes.
While your sauce cooks, boil a large pot of salted water and cook your lasagna noodles. Spray a oven safe casserole dish. Once pasta is drained and cooled, place alternating layers of your Bolognese Sauce, noodles, and mozzarella cheese. My husband hates ricotta, so I just used all mozarella. BUT if this was just for me, I would make a combo cheese mixture of mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan. About 3/4 cup of each, more if you deem necessary. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until your cheese is all melty and starting to brown on top!
A side of delicious bruschetta…here is how I did it…
Toast some baguette. Spread on some garlic. Add tomato, cheese, and thinly cut basil. Broil until cheese is melty and starting to bubble.
