i am a mommy who works full time outside the home (in addition to my full time mommy job) and sometimes i just don't realize my own limitations.  in an effort to be more healthy and frugal i tempted to make my own tortillas tonight.  um ....really?  i maybe need to think that one out a little bit more.  not saying i won't ever try again, but tonight was definetly not the night to try.

Easiest Lasagna Ever

The name of this recipe is Easiest Lasagna Ever, and it truly is.

You need:

1 lb Hamburger
8 oz lasagna noodles
28 oz jar of spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 c of cottage cheese
8 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese
green pepper

Boil the lasagna noodles until tender.  Brown and drain hamburger.  Add cottage cheese and spaghetti sacue to hamburger.  Add onion and green pepper for taste.  Layer meat sauce and lasagna noodles beginning and ending with sauce in a 9 x 13 dish.  approximately 4 big spoonfuls of sauce per layer and 3 noodle strips.  Sprinkle shredded cheese over top.  bake at 350 for one hour.  (anyone who knows me, will know this recipe is not an original but is from a cookbook )

super simple, super good. 

i made this recipe this week and i used  this.  my family didn't even notice and they raved how good it was.  i also used the no cook lasagna noodles and they seemed to work well, other than getting a little crusty on the outside. 


PS...we've made a ton of progress on our project that i mentioned a couple weeks ago, hopefully some before and after shots coming in the next couple of weeks.
