Mom’s Homemade Lasagna

For some, there’s nothing better than a hot, cheesy and hearty homemade lasagna fresh out of the oven. This delicious recipe is from the home of Shirley Bradford, mother of Winter Park Lodging Company’s owner Sarah & Chris Bradford (and grandmother of our mascots, Nicholas & Willem).  Thanks for sharing, Mom!

1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. whole basil
1  1/2 tsp. salt

10 oz. lasagna noodles
3 cups ricotta cheese or cottage or 1 1/2C. both
1/2 cup parmesan or romano cheese

2 beaten eggs
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb. Mozzarella Cheese

Brown sausage, add minced garlic, basil, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook for thirty minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, boil the lasagna noodles until just tender.
