Well, once again I have managed to put some stuff together that has absolutely nothing to do with BBQ. But I guess as long as it tastes great then nobody should really mind too much.
Initially I had planned to do a BBQ Lasagna that would be grilled and then I realized that Smoke In Da Eye BBQ has already done that. Not only has Smoke In Da Eye BBQ done it, I think they have actually perfected the stuff, you can read about it here on their blog. So, I decided to give credit where credit is due and congratulate Smoke In Da Eye BBQ on the best sounding recipe for BBQ Lasagna that I have ever seen. (Eventually I will make one of my own anyway haha)
So, that being said, I decided to just go old school and make a standard lasagna with a little twist. The flavors came out incredible and even though I made two large pans I ended up with no leftovers, I guess it was purty good.
I know the title of this dish is kind of scary but I have to admit, I don’t think I have ever had anything that tasted this good in my life. It has to bad for you since it tastes so freakin good so I couldn’t resist the title.
Every once in a while I make a meal to share with everybody that is soooo good that I get people offering to pay ridiculous amounts of money for me to make it again. At this time I don’t have a restaurant and just enjoy cookin for my friends. But the more times that I get offered money the harder it is for me to turn em down.
Eh, that’s enough about my internal wars lol. Take a look at this recipe, try it out, and fall in love with Lasagna all over again. Garfield never had any lasagna this good.
1 Box Lasagna Noodles (you can use ready for the oven noodles and save a step of boiling the noodles)
2 8 oz packages shredded parmesan cheese
1 8 oz Ricotta Cheese (I use Sergento)
2 8 oz packages shredded mozzarella cheese
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
1 jar alfredo sauce
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground hot italian sausage
If you decide you want to boil the noodles I’m pretty sure now would be the time to get that started. While the noodles are boiling go ahead and put the ground beef and ground sausage in a pan to brown also add the garlic at this point. Once completely browned, drain and set aside. (Remember, you also have sausage in this pan so make sure to cook fully.)
While browning get the cheese spread ready. In a large bowl, add the ricotta cheese, 1 package of the parmesan cheese, and two eggs. Mix until completely mixed.
Start with a 13×9 inch lasagna pan and coat the bottom of the pan with a liberal dose of pasta sauce. Then layer your noodles until you cover the entire bottom of the pan, and let the layering begin…
This is the order that I go, but you can choose your own adventure if you’d like:
First, cover the noodles with sauce, then I had 1/2 of the browned ground meat, then I add 1/2 of the cheese mixture. I spread each to make sure that I have completely covered all of the noodles. I then top that layer with mozzarella cheese, and then a new layer of noodles. And repeat the steps to make another layer.
On top of the third layer of noodles, pour the alfredo sauce and spread to cover all the noodles. Use the second bag of parmesan cheese to cover all of the alfredo. Add the chopped oregano.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and let cook uncovered for 1:15 which should leave you with a nice cheesy crust on top.
Remove from oven and let stand for 20 minutes before serving.
I will tell you, this so freaking good and different enough from the norm that it will blow minds so be careful who you let try it.
