Great For The Freezer

So I love all sorts of pasta! It is probably what I cook most. (you will find that most of my posts will be for food that is probably not the best for you but it sure tastes good) When I have an hour or two I like to make lasagna. It takes a few hours because I usually make four at one time. Here is what I do:

Shopping List:
3-4 boxes of Lasagne (you can use the oven ready ones but it does taste better if you cook the noodles first)
2-3 lbs of hamburger (more if you like a lot of meat)
4-5 cans of Hunts Traditional sauce
2 large cartons of cottage cheese
2 cartons of grated parmasan cheese
Cheddar Cheese
Mozzarella Cheese
Desposible baking pans with lids (I have found the paper ones work the best but the metal ones are cheaper and still work great too)

First start cooking your noodles. Then brown the hamburger then add the sauce (I usually divide it in half since I don't have a pan or skillet big enough to do it all at once) Mix the cottage cheese and the parmasan cheese together. When everything is ready you just start layering it how ever you want. I can usually get about 4 pans out of it if I do fewer layers I can get five.

These are great to put in the feezer and pull out on a night you don't feel like cooking. They really do freeze great. I have found that making my own is a lot cheaper than buying the frozen ones; and if you can catch the cheese on sale it is really cheap since cheese is so expensive.

Happy Cooking

That is a great idea! I'm going to have to try that out.
