Last night I made a yummy lasagna for dinner. I was super excited about making it because I found some ground pork when I was doing our weekly grocery shopping. So I just cooked up the ground pork and some 80/20 ground pork and then mixed in the sauce. I used some Ragu Meat Sauce just some basic and easy. I did add some McCormick parsley flakes, McCormick rubbed sage and some McCormick Italian rosemary seasoning. This was my base layer. I always layer noodles on the bottom and then I put my tomato sauce ground meat on the noodles. My hubby loves cheese so I added a bit of cheese on top of that layer.
I wanted to get a few veggies in the mix as well so I just heated up some smoked sausage and spinach and added it on my next layer. I placed my Ricotta cheese on top of the spinach and sausage and then added a layer of noddles on top of the Ricotta.
The final layer I added two different kinds of cheeses on top to finish off the lasagna.
The final product came out the over looks good and greasy and it tasted great.
This is a great dish to make for a big family and I think you can get at least 8 good servings out of this. Here’s a great price breakdown.
1.5 pounds of ground pork – $2.34
1 pound of ground beef – $2.48
1 box of lasagna noodles – $1.49
1 medium size tub of Ricotta cheese – $0.99 on sale with a coupon
2 packs of shredded cheese – $1.98 ($0.99 on sale)
1 pack of smoked sausage – $1.99
2 cups of spinach – (I got the package on sale for $0.99)
Total cost I spent was – $12. 26
So my cost per serving at 8 people is just $1.53 per serving. That’s great and it could be even cheaper if you adjust the ingredients used. That’s a cheap eat.
I hope you give this meat lovers lasagna a try.
