I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Lasagna or Mac-a-sagna (Whitney Heap)

½ lb hamburger

onion powder

28oz crushed tomatoes

1 can (6oz) tomato paste

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

¼ tsp garlic salt

1 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp oregano

12 oz lasagna noodles (or 2 c macaroni noodles)*

1 egg

2 c cottage cheese

2 c mozzarella cheese

2 c grated cheddar cheese.

Brown hamburger and onion. Drain. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, pepper, garlic salt, sugar, and oregano. Simmer until meat sauce is thick. Cook lasagna noodles till tender in salted water (10 min). Rinse in cold water. Mix egg with cottage cheese. Grease 9x13 pan. Put a layer of noodles in bottom, a layer of meat, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, and cheddar cheese. Repeat 2 more times (3 layers) ending with cheese on top. Bake @ 375° for 30 min and let sit for 30 min.

*Macaroni noodles are a great choice for little kids because they are easier to eat and require no cutting by Mom or Dad!

The mac-a-sagna idea comes from my sister Nancy. She's very efficient and creative. I love how the macaroni noodles make this meal so much easier with the kids!
