Prosciutto Lasagna
Prosciutto Lasagna
 
 
Ingredients:
 
8 ounces lasagna pasta noodles, cooked
8 ounces Italian prosciutto, chopped
16 ounces can whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
1 cup cottage cheese, lg. curd
1 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
1 lb mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb lean ground beef
4 tbs fresh basil, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped or minced
1/4 tsp oregano
Ground black pepper
1/2 cup dry white
Wine
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
Fresh basil sprigs for garnish

Directions:
 
Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions or until tender but still firm.
 
Drain, keep warm.

To make the sauce, in a large saucepan or cast iron skillet, over medium-high high heat, sauté the garlic, onion and prosciutto in the olive oil for 4 minutes.

Add the lean beef, oregano, a touch of black pepper and sauté for 10 minutes.
 
Add the wine and cook until the wine is almost evaporated.

Add tomatoes and basil, reduce heat and simmer sauce 35 to 40 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Grease a 9 x 12 or larger, deep sided baking pan.
 
Arrange a first layer of lasagna noodles, a layer of the beef and prosciutto tomato sauce, cottage cheese, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
 
Add a second alternating layer of noodles, sauce and other ingredients.
 
Repeat until pan is full ending up with a top layer of sauce.

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake in a pre-heated oven at 400° F for 30 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil

Note: When layering the pasta, place bottom layer in pan so the ends lay over the sides of the pan. For the final layer lay the ends from the first layer back-over the top. This helps to hold lasagna together when cutting serving portions.

That's it!
