Gordo's Best of the Best Lasagna

Recipe by  

"This recipe is adapted from several of the better lasagna dishes previously submitted. To test it, I invited a couple who previously owned an Italian restaurant. They were very impressed. This lasagna dish will become a regular in our household. In this dish I used a spicy moose sausage; you can use pork, deer, moose, lamb, or any other spicy sausage. To be enjoyed with a mixed salad, Italian bread, and a delightful red wine."

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  2. Cook and stir sausage, beef, onion, and garlic in a large, deep skillet over medium heat until browned. Stir tomato basil sauce, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, 3/4 cup parsley, Italian seasoning, sugar, sea salt, and pepper into sausage mixture. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend, about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  4. Stir ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, eggs, and remaining 1/4 cup parsley together in a large bowl until smooth.
  5. Spread 1 cup tomato sauce in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Cover sauce with a layer of lasagna noodles and spread the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Spread a layer of tomato sauce over the ricotta and a layer of noodles over the tomato sauce. Repeat the layering procedure 1 more time. Spread remaining sauce over the final layer of noodles and top with mozzarella cheese. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake lasagna in the preheated oven until hot throughout and bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and bake until cheese is golden, about 10 minutes more. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

I prepared Gordo's recipe today with a few small changes. Everyone loved my homemade lasagna, and of course I gave Gordo the credit for his recipe. I added mozzarella cheese after the layer of sauce; but not on the bottom of the casserole dish. The sauce is nice and thick and doesn't liquify which I don't like. I didn't use the canned tomatoes or tomato sauce. I used a bottle of Ragu with roasted garlic. It's a good recipe!

this is so great tasting. all the guest loved the flavor. I myself love sharp tasting cheese and this worked so nice in complementing the flavor of the sauce and ricotta cheese blend. thanks for sharing (Grandma's recipe is replaced with this one)... (sorry grandma).. But such high reviews from all of our guest and even phone calls for the recipe it was nice to tell them they could get it here!!!!!!

We loved this recipe! So good. I didn't have a 15oz can of tomato sauce, so I used a can of tomato paste and filled the diced tomato can with water. It was a delicious dinner and our guests loved it.

I made this right by the recipe except for a bit less Italian seasoning (I don't care for it to be too strong). This was wonderful! My husband said it was the best he's ever had! I used Publix brand tomato basil pasta sauce, and didn't make any part of it lower fat. I like to make recipes as they are the first time, then alter if I want to next time. I think with this I'll just use portion control, as I really don't want to change anything! BTW...I may have made my layers a bit thick as I had many noodles left over and some meat too. I am going to use them and get a bit more of the cheese layer ingredients and make another to freeze.
