1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, sliced
1/2 cup dill pickle slices
Ketchup and yellow mustard


1. Grease a 13 x 9 inch (3-quart) baking dish.

2. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, water, ketchup and mustard. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat egg. Stir in ricotta and the American-cheddar cheese blend.

4. Spread 1 cup beef mixture over bottom of baking dish. Top with 4 uncooked noodles. Spread half of the ricotta mixture over noodles; top with 1 1/2 cups beef mixture. Repeat layers once with 4 noodles, remaining ricotta mixture and 1 1/2 cups beef mixture. Top with remaining 4 noodles, beef mixture and the cheddar cheese.

5. Cover pan with foil; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. (Note: The lasagna can also be baked right away.)

6. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake lasagna, covered, 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 25 to 35 minutes longer or until bubbly.

7. Remove from oven. Cover with foil; let stand 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.

8. Just before serving, top with lettuce, tomato and pickles. Serve with additional ketchup and yellow mustard if you like.

This is a fun tune by Melbourne based musician, Hamish Anderson. ‘Howl’ gets just a touch too jammy rockout for me near the end, but it’s still pretty awesome.

Check out Hamish Anderson on his Website, where you can buy the music.
