Mom's Famous Lasagna!

By far one of my favorite meals that my mom makes his her lasagna! Honestly, it's probably the best I've ever had, and I'm totally not being biased! I made it for my friends the other day, and my friend Cortney, who doesn't ever like lasagna, loved it! I figured I'd post this on my blog so I can have it handy someday (Once I get enough recipes on here, I'm gonna turn it into a blog book recipe book!). This lasagna is the best you'll probably ever have, so I recommend making it!

Mom's Famous Lasagna
Brown together: one pound lean ground beef, one pound Italian sausage
Add dried onions or real chopped onions if desired
Drain meat if necessary
Add one can spaghetti sauce, one large can tomato sauce, one large can water
Add Italian seasoning, lemon pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt (a couple shakes of each)
Bring to a low boil, turn down heat and simmer as long as you want, but about half an hour is right
Bring large pot to a rolling boil, add about 12 lasagna noodles, cook until tender (see box to find out how long)
When noodles are done, drain in colander and rinse in cool water.
Spray 8 1/2 by 11 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Place a layer of noodles in bottom of dish.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese over noodles
Cover noodles with a layer of sauce
Cover with grated cheese (I use a colby/mozzarella mixture)
Repeat two times
Layer two additional, shorter noodles across top
Cover with parmesan cheese, and then mozzarella cheese if you have it, combo cheese if that's all your have
Cover with alumninum foil.
Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
Remove aluminum foil and bake 10 minutes longer
Let cool about ten or fifteen minutes.
Cut and serve. Enjoy! Yum--it sounds so good!!
