Meaty Lasagna

I made P-Dubs lasagna! You know what, it was very similar to the one my mom has always made, and that I loved as a kid. Instead of ricotta, she uses a cottage cheese, egg, and herb blend. Not sure why I ever stopped making that recipe. Maybe I thought I would get all fancy and use ricotta. Or maybe I just like to eat spoonfuls of ricotta cheese while I make my lasagna. Well, whatever the reason, I think I will go back to my old ways….because this lasagna ROCKED!

Cottage cheese mixture is easy to whip together.

This is recipe is full of MEAT….it will definitely put put some hair on your chest. And she uses whole canned tomatos and lots of tomato paste, makes for a very hearty thick sauce….like I said some hair on your chest!

WOW! Look at that don’t I just have it all together there. My lasagna assemble line.

Yyyyeh…..not really. If you look at the dish I started to assemble my lasagna in and the one it ended up in are two different dishes. The first one was not quite big enough. Dag-nab-it! I did my very impressive lasagna flip trick! It’s really very easy…but please don’t try it at home. It could result in massive amounts of meaty red sauce all over your kitchen.

So there you have it another heart in my cookbook, another recipe devoured by my family and my mother-n-law too! Everyone gave it a thumbs up!

  1. Hi, I'm new to Pioneer Woman. My friend has her cookbook, and I borrowed it to make Iny's Prune Cake. My nanna use to make it for me, but she didn't tell me about the prunes until much later. I know what you are thinking..prunes, yuck! But let me tell you, the cake was amazing, just like nanna's. My hubby thought it was delicious, even after I told him about the prunes, and my picky eater of a son, ate several pieces, but I didn't tell him about the prunes. That will be my secret for now, just like nanna. I hope you try her recipe for this cake, it is moist and extremelly delicious.
