New Microwave recipe for you!

Microwave Lasagna

Ingredients for the meat sauce:

1/2 lb. mild Italian sausage
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 chopped yellow onion
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
3 minced garlic cloves
Italian Seasoning
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
2 Tbs. steak sauce
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
two 1-lb. jars spaghetti sauce

Grate 1/12 cups Parmesan Cheese, set aside.

Grate 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, set aside

Chop onions and green pepper with a Food Chopper. Mince garlic with a Garlic Press.

In 12-inch skillet, brown sausage and ground meat. (Chop the meat) Cook for 5 minutes.

Add onions, green pepper and garlic. Add 2 TBSP Italian Seasoning. Cook for 5 minutes. Add 2 jars spaghetti sauce, mixing well.

In Large Batter Bowl, mix:

15 oz. ricotta cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 Tbs. chopped parsley
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. garlic powder

In Bean Pot, spoon in a layer of meat sauce. Add a layer of no-cook lasagna noodles. Sprinkle noodles with some of the Parmesan and Jack cheeses. Add a layer of the filling, using several spoonfuls spread evenly per layer.

Repeat the sequence of sauce, noodles, cheese and filling. Be sure you finish with the ricotta mixture on top, since it will seal in the cheese and keep it from becoming rubbery in the microwave.

Cook 15 minutes on high, then 20 minutes on medium. Top with more Parmesan Cheese. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve with mini serving spatula.

*Note: This can also be prepared in the oven. Cook uncovered at 375 degrees for one hour. Let rest for 15 minutes.
