I have invented this scrumptious recipe for lasagna that involves putting sour cream into it. Why did I put sour cream into my lasagna, you may ask? Well, I had sour cream in my fridge because I needed it when I made Beef Stroganoff. I didn't know what else to use the sour cream with, and I didn't want it to go bad, so I thought... I'll put it into the lasagna. A more delicious idea has never been thought of. And look... I even took my very own picture of it. (This time, I decided to but a decorative table runner underneath it for the photo so you couldn't tell that I put it on the carpet, like last time.) I wonder if I am the first person in the world who has ever thought to put sour cream into their lasagna. Maybe I should patent this idea. It's so creamy and really, really wonderful. Anyway, here is the recipe:
Brown 1 lb grass-fed organic beef
Add 1 onion, chopped, and
2 cloves of garlic, then add
14 oz tomato sauce
8 oz tomato paste
14 oz water
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Let this all simmer for an hour or more. The secret to a good sauce is to let it simmer.
In the meantime, grate 1/2 lb of raw milk cheddar cheese.
And, in a bowl, mix 2 eggs with 1/2 cup of sour cream.
Also, get some baby spinach leaves out and ready for action.
Now, put a little bit of the sauce into your lasagna pan, just to coat the bottom of it. Then, add 3 uncooked rice lasagna noodles. Never boil your lasagna noodles ahead of time. It's a waste of your time. It turns out just as good if you just put them in there uncooked.
Then, start your layers. It will be noodles, 1/3 of the sauce, a handful of baby spinach leaves, 1/2 of the egg/sour cream mixture, and 1/2 of the cheese. Do this twice, then top with a final layer of noodles and the last 1/3 of the sauce.
Cover pan with tin foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove tin foil and cook for 15 minutes more.
I will eat 3 pieces of this lasagna. Vern will eat 3. And the kids will eat 2 or 3, depending on how hungry they are. Most kids would probably only eat 1 or 2 pieces though because it is filling. My kids can just eat a lot.
