Mrs. Emmet Tenly's recipe for LASAGNA


WOW! This is one of the most worn & used recipe in my collection! It was published in the Council Bluffs Nonpareil in 1968! At some point in time I copied it onto a recipe card but by the time I slipped it into a plastic sleeve I’d used it so many times that now

it is difficult to read through the accumulated smudges. It is an excellent, easy and quick recipe for lasagna! I don’t know Mrs. Tenly but I thank her for sharing the recipe that I have served to my family many many times.

Brown and drain: 1 lb. hamburger w/chopped onion

Add: 1 #202 can tomatoes 1 6-oz can tomato paste

1 2-oz can mushrooms (cut up) ¼ tsp. oregano

2 tsp. garlic salt

1 bay leaf

Boil lasagna noodles while above is simmering (1/2 package)

Spoon into baking dish as follows:

1. Sauce

2. Noodles

3. Cheese (mixture of 1 cup parmesan grated cheese & 1 cup grated longhorn cheese)

(Continue to layer and end up with cheese on top layer)

Cover and bake in 350⁰ oven for 30 minutes

Serve with a salad and garlic bread.



Just out of the oven!












Served for one of our meals (Mah Jongg weekend) at the lodge in Ponca State Park.
