Stove top Lasagna
I’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s a family favorite. When you want a quick and hearty meal, this is a great one. This is an especially good recipe for during the busy holiday season.
1 pound grassfed ground beef
1 (26-ounce) jar of organic spaghetti sauce (I used TJ’s)
1 (14 ½ ounce) can organic tomatoes, whole, pureed, anyway you like
2 cups organic ricotta cheese or organic cottage cheese
1 large pastured egg, beaten
1 (12-ounce) package organic, thin to medium egg noodles
Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes; drain well.
Add half the jarred spaghetti sauce to ground beef n skillet and mix well. Pour tomatoes evenly over ground meat.
Combine ricotta and egg in a small bowl and mix well. Spread evenly over tomatoes. Top with a layer of noodles.
Layer the remaining spaghetti sauce and the remaining noodles in the skillet.
I press them lightly into the meat, with a wooden spoon, to help them cook evenly.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook covered, until noodles are tender, about 10-20 minutes. If your noodles are thick it can take a few minutes more. You can put some mozzarella cheese on during the last two minutes and/or some Parmesan on at the table. Serve immediately and enjoy!
