<shfrye@PEN.K12.VA.US> Here is a recipe that is best assembled the
night before, after the kids are in bed, then popped into the oven
when you get home from work. While it bakes, put your feet up, let the
kids watch Barney (the purple dinosaur I hate), have a glass of
chilled wine, and relax..... Brown hamburger and onion; drain. Add
Ragu, spices, sugar, salt, and water. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. In a "lasagna"
sized casserole, layer the drained noodles and the ragu mixture,
beginning and ending with the sauce. Top with shredded cheese. Bake at
375 degrees (covered) for 45 minutes. Uncover, and bake for 10 minutes
more. Optional center layer: Mix together 1 egg, 1 1/2 cups cottage
cheese, salt, and pepper. Spread this over the first layer of
sauce/noodles, and then continue layering. This optional center layer
will make this casserole taste just like lasagna. This casserole can
be prepared to the baking point, then frozen. Thaw before baking.
Make TWO casseroles out of this if you have a small family. Bake one
and freeze one for an emergency. Personal note: This recipe was given
to me by Alice Robertson, my next door neighbor. Whenever either of us
makes this, we divide the casserole in two parts and share with each
other. EAT-L DIGEST 19 JUNE 1996 From the EAT-L recipe list.
