I recently had my second trimester ultrasound and everything is going well (currently at 19 weeks), we also found out that we are having a GIRL!!!!! We are so excited and could not keep this news a secret. Next project is picking out a name, this is going to be tough.
Just what this mamma to be needs, a meal that is easy to make and does not take hours to cook.
1 Tb. olive oil
1 medium onion, diced fine
3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1 lb. total of ground beef or turkey (I used turkey to make it lean)
8-10 lasagna noodles, broken into 2″ length
24 oz. favorite pasta sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 Tb. dried oregano
1/2 Tb. dried basil (optional)
1 cup ricotta cheese
You will need a large 12″ non-stick skillet with a lid. Heat skillet to medium and add olive oil, saute onions until golden brown (5 minutes). Add garlic, stir about 30 seconds.
Add meat and cook until brown/done. Mix in pasta sauce and sprinkle the lasagna noodles (already broken) on top. Make sure the noodles are in contact with the liquid, add water as needed to keep moist. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Stir once in a while. The pasta should be tender at the end.
Season with oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix in ricotta cheese, sprinkle with parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
