Lisette's Raised Meatballs with Minute Rice

4 slices soft bread, cubed
1/2 c milk
2 eggs
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp salt
2 T chopped onion
2 tsp baking powder
dash of pepper
1 T. steak seasoning

Soak bread in milk and egg mixture for 10 minutes. Then mix in thoroughly with meat and spices. Form into balls. Brown in skillet. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350.

I already did everything to this point. So, really all you need to do is make the cream of chicken soup by adding 1 can of milk to the soup, and either put in your crock pot (2-3 hours) or bake in oven at 325 for 35-45 minutes (or until hot and bubbly). Serve over minute rice. (2 cups boiling water/2 cups rice)

For corn, just add 2 T water, cover and cook 3 minutes. Stir and cook an additional 2 minutes.

Lisette's Lasagna (May 2011)

2 lbs ground beef
1 clove minced garlic
2 T. Italian seasoning
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 can tomatoes drained (12 oz)
2 - 6 oz cans tomato paste
1/2 tsp pepper
2 T parsley flakes

10 oz lasagna noodles (I like Barilla, oven ready)
3 c. cottage cheese (about 1 small container or 1 1/2 containers)
2 beaten eggs

1/2 c. Parmesan
1/2 lb mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 lb cheese (any other kind that you like), grated

Brown meat slowly and spoon off extra fat. Add remaining ingredients. Stir and heat together.
Grease 9x13 pan. Mix together eggs and cottage cheese until creamy.

Mix mozzarella cheese with other type of grated cheese.

Layer starting with noodles, then sauce, then drizzle cottage cheese egg mixture, then cheese, then repeat until pan is about 1 cm from top. Use 1/2 cup parmesan as the last layer.

Bake 350 to 375 for 30-45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
Serve with crescent rolls (cook as directed on package), can baste with butter and garlic salt if you like garlic flavor.

Homemade Spaghetti

First let me tell you how to cook the garlic bread so I don't forget.
Preheat oven to 420 F. Cook bread 5-6. To brown on both sides turn over after 3 minutes.
(I like to broil for the last minute to make the bread crispy)

Homemade Spaghetti
1lb browned hamburger
1 package McCormick's Thick & Zesty Spaghetti Sauce Mix
 1 28 oz can Hunt's whole tomatoes
1cup water
Combine sauce mix, tomatoes, and water in blender, then add to cooked hamburger.
Simmer for 1 hour until meat is tender. Serve over noodles.
