Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great labor day weekend! We had some out-of-town company this weekend. It is so great to spend time with family that we don’t get to see very often. Tomorrow it is back to the rat race, so here is my plan for dinner this week
Last night I made Italian Sausage Lasagna for dinner with a side of bruschetta. It was super yummy; everyone went in for seconds, but I still have enough for leftovers to take to lunch!
Italian Suasage Lasagna and Tomato and Basil Bruschetta
1 pound ground Italian Sausage
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can jarred mushrooms
1 jar of your favorite sauce- I used Classico Tomato and Basil
1 handful of chopped fresh basil, thyme, and rosemary
1 pound lasagna noodles
1 large bag of shredded mozzarella
Cook noodles according to package.
In a dutch oven or large heavy pot, cook down your onions, garlic, and sausage. When sausage is nice and brown, add in your diced tomatoes, mushrooms, and sauce. Add in your fresh herbs and mix well.
Layer your noodles, sauce, and cheese. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until your cheese starts bubble and turn brown. Once out of the oven, let it set up about 10-15 minutes. During this time, you can make the Bruchetta- layer olive oil, minced garlic, chopped tomatoes, and fresh cut basil on top of sliced of Italian loaf.
Monday- Tonight! Roast Chicken of some sort. I will let you know later tonight if it is something new.
Wed- Lamb Chops (didn’t eat last week)
Thursday- Leftovers/Whatever Night
Friday- Linguine and Clams
Have a great week!
