23 ounces of ricotta cheese.

Start with the following in a pot:

1 pound (450 g) of sweet Italian sausage
1 pound (450 g) of ground beef
1/2 cup (120 mL) of chopped onions
2 cloves of garlic chopped

The flavor of the Italian sausage varies from brand to brand. You may need to try a different brand the first couple of times you cook this dish. Find the flavor you like the best.

Brown the ground beef, Italian sausage, onions and garlic in a pot until they start to cook. It takes about 6 to 9 minutes to brown the meat. I like to use a Dutch oven to cook this portion of the recipe. I use a medium low temperature to brown the meat. It is optional to remove the grease from the meat once it is finished browning, your choice.

Add the following:

1 (28 ounce) (784 g) can of crushed tomatoes
2 (8 ounce) (230 g) cans of tomato sauce
2 (6 ounce) (168 g) cans of tomato paste

I have tried many different Lasagna recipes over the years. This is the culmination of all that trial and error, a wonderful recipe that needs to be shared with the world. The ingredients and actual recipe are at the end of this article. I know you won’t be disappointed with my Best Lasagna Recipe!

Start with the following in a pot:

2 cloves of garlic chopped

Add the following:

1 teaspoon (5 mL) fennel seed
2 teaspoons (10 mL) fresh Basil leaves chopped
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh Italian parsley chopped
1 teaspoon (5 mL) salt
1 teaspoon (5 mL) Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) ground pepper

Gently stir these seasoning into the sauce.

Cover the pot and let the meat sauce simmer. Simmer on low heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes This is the ideal simmer time but not mandatory. If you don’t have time it will still be great after one hour of simmering.

I will sometimes make this sauce and refrigerate it after it finishes simmering. I will use the meat sauce the next day to put the rest of this recipe together. For some reason Italian meat sauce taste even better the next day. But that’s up to you.

Soak 12 lasagna noodles.

The lasagna noodles need to be soaked in hot tap water for 15 minutes.

While the noodles are soaking you can make the cheese filling.

Put the following in a mixing bowl:

23 ounces (644 g) of ricotta cheese.
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) fresh grated nutmeg

Grate fresh nutmeg over the Ricotta cheese.

Add the following:

1 egg
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh Italian parsley chopped

Mix these ingredients together with a spoon

Now we start building the lasagna layers.

Use a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Spread 2 Cups (480 mL) of meat sauce on the bottom of the pan.

Remove your lasagna noodles out of the water bath. Shake water off wet noodles.

Lay 6 noodles across the layer of sauce.

Spread half of the ricotta cheese mixture over the layer of noodles.

Spread 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese over the ricotta layer.
Sprinkle half of the Parmesan cheese over the mozzarella layer

Spread 2 cups (480 mL) of meat sauce over the cheese layer
Lay down the next layer of noodles
Spread the remaining ricotta mixture over noodles
Spread the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses saving some cheese for the top of the lasagna
Put the last layer of meat sauce on the cheeses
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

It should look similar to the picture above.

Cover with foil
Bake in preheated oven at 350 F (177 C) for 25 minutes
Remove foil and bake uncovered for another 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for approximately 15 minutes.

Canja { Brazilian Chicken Soup }

"This is a meaty Brazilian chicken soup made with rice, carrots, tomatoes and diced ham."

Ingredients:
--------------------
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken meat
1 onion, chopped
6 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup long-grain white rice
3/4 cup tomato - peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup chopped carrots
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup diced ham
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions:
----------------------
1. To a large saucepan, add the chicken, onion, and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, and cover. Cook over low heat until the chicken is tender, about 45 minutes. Lift the chicken out onto a platter, and set aside. Strain the stock through a sieve set over a bowl. Discard the solids, and skim off as much fat as possible from stock.

2. Rinse out the saucepan, and return the stock to it. Add the rice, tomatoes and carrots to the stock. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer. Cook until the rice is tender, about 25 minutes.

3. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, cut it into strips about 1/2 X 1 1/2 inches. Return the chicken to the soup with the ham, and cook just long enough to heat through. Add the parsley, and serve.

Rice with Duck (Arroz con Pato)

Ingredients
4 duck legs and thighs
2 cans beer
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup red onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
½ cup ají mirasol paste
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup cilantro leaves
1 cup spinach leaves
8 cups duck stock
Salt and pepper
3 cups long grain white rice
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup green peas
Salsa Criolla



Instructions
Combine duck legs with a can of beer in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Take the legs out of the marinade before cooking and dry the pieces with paper towels.
In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat, add the duck, and sear until golden. Transfer to a plate, cover the pieces, and keep warm. In the same pan, add the chopped onion and garlic, cooking for 10 minutes over medium heat. Add ají mirasol, turmeric, and cumin, stir and cook for 10 more minutes.
In the meantime, process cilantro and spinach leaves in a blender, with ½ cup water until very smooth. Add to the saucepan, together with the duck stock, the other beer, and the reserved seared duck. Season with salt and pepper, cover tightly, turn the heat to low and cook for 1 ½ hours or until the duck is loosening from the bone. Taste for seasoning. Transfer to a bowl with some of the liquid.
Measure the liquid in the pan. You will need 4 ½ cups of this green and flavorful stock to cook the rice. Add the rice to the saucepan, along with the cooking stock, bell pepper, and green peas. Put the lid on, lower the heat, and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and after 5 minutes, stir the rice with a fork.
Serve the rice with a piece of duck on top, and salsa criolla on the side.
