Cooking Recipe

Servings: 12-16
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Ready In: 1 hour & 30 minutes

Ingredients:
1/3 cup olive oil
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp cracked black pepper, plus extra for coating beef
1 medium onion, chopped small
1 red pepper, chopped small
1 green pepper, chopped small
6 garlic cloves, minced
5 leaves basil, finely chopped, plus leaves for garnish
1 tbsp oregano, Chopped
1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (8 ounce) can tomato paste
2 tsp salt
1 (8 ounce) box dry lasagna noodles
1 pint ricotta cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated, plus extra for garnish
1 cup mozzarella cheese, Grated

Directions:
1. Heat the oil in a large pot on high heat. Add the beef and coat it with pepper. Cook through, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the beef from the pot and add in the onions, peppers, 1/2 of the garlic, and herbs. Turn the heat to medium and cook the vegetables until soft. Add in the tomato sauce and paste. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer for 1 hour.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

3. Add the dry lasagna to the boiling water and cook until al dente. Remove and place on baking sheet coated with olive oil. Toss the pasta to coat it completely.

4. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

5. In a bowl, mix the ricotta and Parmesan well. In a 9 by 12-inch baking dish, begin laying down the pasta. Smooth on a layer of the cheese mixture and spoon on meat sauce. Add another layer of pasta and repeat this process until you reach the top of the dish. The final layer should be cheese mixture and fresh mozzarella.

6. Cover with foil and place in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and let brown for 15 more minutes.

7. To serve, spoon on meat sauce on a warm plate. Place a large square of lasagna on the pool of sauce. Top with Parmesan and a basil leaf.
