    First let me say, I have never made it-I am trying this recipe on Wednesday. I do make lasagna quite a bit, so I feel it will be good.

    MAKE AHEAD CHEESEBURGER LASAGNA

    1.5 pounds of ground beef
    3 T. instant minced onion
    1 15 oz can tomato sauce
    1.5 cups water
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1 T. mustard (not dry)
    1 egg
    1 15 oz container Ricotta cheese
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite)
    12 uncooked Lasagna noodles
    1 cup shredded cheese (again, your favorite)
    1 cup shredded lettuce
    1 medium tomato, sliced
    1/2 cup hamburger dills, sliced

    1. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over med-high heat 6-7 min until browned. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, water, ketchup, and mustard. Simmer 5 min, stirring occasionally.

    2. In med. bowl, beat egg with fork. Stir in ricotta cheese and 2 cups shredded cheese.

    3. Spread 1 cup beef mixture in bottom of pan. Top with 4 uncooked lasagna noodles. Spread half of ricotta mixture over noodles, top with 1.5 cups beef mixture. Repeat layers once with 4 noodles, remaining ricotta mixture, and 1.5 cups beef mixture. Top with remaining 4 noodles, ,remaining beef mixture, and 1 cup shredded cheese. Cover with foil and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

    4. Heat oven to 350. Bake lasagna, covered for 45 minutes. Uncover, and bake for 25-35 minutes more until bubbly. Remove from oven, cover with foil and let set for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

    5. Just before serving, top with lettuce tomato and pickles. Serve with additional ketchup if desired.

    8 servings. 570 calories 29 grams fat

    I am going to serve the lettuce on the side, maybe even go with a more regular green salad.

    This is a high calorie supper, but every once in a while, you just gotta have something CHEESY-you know??

    I used to be so very careful about our diet but in the 8 years we've lived here on the farm I learned a lesson from my Amish neighbors who have what appears to be a horrible diet! If you work hard-- physically work hard all day like we now do on our farm, you can pretty well eat anything you darn tooting want to! I have to be a little more careful in the winter, days like today where it is bitter cold and we'll only get out and do what has to be done where once Spring hits we are out working hard sun up to sun down. all of us and I mean we work hard. But I found it's the winter time we need the extra fats and cheeses! I think it helps us stay warm in this bitter cold out here on the prairie!

    I wish I could relate. I do not work physically hard, and feel guilty when we eat fattening foods. I guess it would not hurt me to get out and rake some leaves or something. It will be 70 degrees today for us and gorgeous.
