4 Cups Shredded Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 Cups Grated Parmesan Cheese

Simple Lasagna

Step 1 - Place the noodles in boiling water and wait for it to be cooked. Meanwhile, you can cook the sausage, beef, onion over a medium heat for about eight minutes, until the meat is no longer pink. Then add minced garlic and mix it. Cook for another one minute and drain it.

Step 2 - Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, water, sugar, parsley, basil, salt, pepper and bring it to boil. As soon as it is starts to boil, lower the heat; simmer. Keep in mind, you should not put the cover on the pot. Let it simmer for 30 minutes, and stir it occasionally.

Step 3 - In a bowl, mix egg, ricotta cheese and 1/4 parsley and salt. Then, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 4 - Since you have all the ingredients ready, you can start putting together your lasagna. Take your baking dish, preferably, 13x19-inch and spread some meat sauce. Then, layer three noodles and third cup of ricotta mixture. Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella cheese and two tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Repeat this process until you use all of the ingredients that you have.

Step 5 - Place the bowl in the oven and bake it covered for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, remove the cover and bake it for another 25 minutes. After you take it out of the oven, wait 15 minutes for it to cool down before you start serving it.

Tips - You can make this lasagna for 12 people as a main dish of the night. I'm sure, if you follow all the steps, you will make the most delicious lasagna ever. You should definitely make the lasagna few hours before the dinner time. However, desserts like cheesecakes must be made a day before.

1/2 Pint Sour Cream

2 1/2 Tbs All-Purpose Flour

Step 1 - Make sure that all of your ingredients are at room temperature. Then, set the temperature of the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and preheat the oven. Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter and spread it out at the bottom of the baking pan and bake it for 10 minutes.

Step 2 - In a mixing bowl, place cream cheese, yogurt and sugar and mix it with the mixer. Then, add one egg at a time and mix it. After that, add one teaspoon vanilla extract and baking powder. Squeeze the half of the lemon and add the juice in the mixture. Finally, you add three tablespoon flour in it and mix it again until you have a nice consistency.

Step 3 - Add the cream cheese mixture in the baking pan and put it in the oven. Bake it for exactly 50 minutes and set it aside to cool down.

Step 4 - In a small bowl, mix sour cream, a drop of vanilla extract, 3 tablespoons of sugar and mix it. Then, squeeze half a lemon and add the juice to the mixture.

Step 5 - Spread the sour cream mixture throughout the cheesecake. This topping will help you to cover any cracks that cheesecake has and at the same time it balances the taste of the taste of the cake.

To bake both, the lasagna and the cheesecake, it is very important to have a constant and even temperature throughout the oven. That is why it is so important to make sure that you are using a good range. You should check out Bosch's slide-in and Jenn-Air's freestanding ranges.
