First Try at Making Lasagna

Hey ya’ll!

So today I tried making lasgna from scratch from the first time. I kinda winged it LOL. I read the ingredients on the boxed lasagna and figured out my own plan of action. This is a fool proof, easy recipe.


1 lb Ground beef
1 lb Ground sausage
30 oz Ricotta cheese
Italian seasoning (oregano, basil)
Ragu sauce (romano/ parmesan)
Pizza blend cheese (sounds crazy but it’s perfect because it’s just a mozzarella and parmesan cheese blend)
Lasagna noodles
Olive oil
Salt, pepper


1. Preheat your oven to 400°.
Brown your sausage and ground beef

2. Boil about 15 lasagna noodles. Make sure you stir often so that the noodles don’t stick to your pot.

3. When the noodles are done, drain and place on a towel until you are ready to use them. Don’t use cheap paper towels for this (like I did) because the noodles will stick to them.

4. Make cheesy mixture. Mix the pizza cheese, ricotta cheese, and eggs. And italian seasoning.

5. Layer : Meat, noodles, cheese mix, sauce, repeat again


6. Cover with foil and put in oven for 40 minutes

7. Pair with a glass of wine and enjoy!

Of course I didn’t wait for it to cool so it’s messy on my plate lol. Wait about 10 minutes before you dig in. Oh and I forgot to mention….it was delicious!!

Grilled Cheese Rolls

Sandwich bread.

Start out with your favorite sandwich bread. Any kind will do!

Use a rolling pin to flatten the sandwich bread.

Then use a rolling pin to flatten each slice.

Cut off the bread crusts, if desired.

If you’re anti-crusts, you can cut off the crusts (like I prefer!).

Layer bread slices with American cheese.

Then layer each piece of flattened bread with a piece of American cheese.

Roll each up into a single roll.

Carefully roll each piece of bread into a tight little roll.

Melt butter in a skillet and grill the rolls.

Then melt a tablespoon or two of butter in a skillet over medium heat, and place each grilled cheese roll seam-side down in the skillet. Press down with a skillet to keep the roll from unraveling. Cook on all sides until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.

Use Progresso Tomato Soup as a dipping sauce.

Then get your extra-delicious “dipping sauce” ready – some Progresso tomato soup!

Gooey insides of the Grilled Cheese Rolls.

Serve immediately while that cheese is still warm and gooey.

Grilled Cheese Rolls ready to dunk!
