Welcome baby Will!

My friends Mere and Dustin just recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy into their family. I made some lasagna in hopes that the new parents can spend more time with their son instead of cooking.

I used the sauce recipe from the meatballs for this.

Traditional Lasagna
2 boxes of no cook lasagna noodles
spaghetti sauce
2lbs ground beef
1lb ground sausage
32 oz ricotta
32 grated jack cheese
pinch of nutmeg
15 slices of provolone

Cook the meat with about a tablespoon of Italian seasoning and some salt and pepper.

Mix the meat and sauce in a bowl.

In another bowl mix all the ricotta and most of the jack (reserve about 1.5 cups for the top) with a little pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.

In a large baking dish layer the noodles, meat and cheese until it is full.

On top sprinkle more cheese and lay the slices down.
Bake for 45-60 minutes covered at 350.
Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes.
Let it rest for 20 minutes before serving.
