Feed Me: confused lasagna {by Auntie Mimi}

Hey readers! I’m so thrilled to have Auntie Mimi here to share one of her yummy recipes. She’s an amazing cook! Her husband and her run a local catering business called Taste and See Catering, be sure to like their Facebook page here! – Sparrow<3


The other day, I couldn’t decide between white sauce or red sauce for my noodles… So I started searching on Google to see if anyone in history ever thought it was a good idea to mix them together. As it turns out there were a few recipes, but I was lacking ingredients for most of the ones that I found. So, like a good little thrifty housewife, I went to the cupboards to search. I came up with, what we affectionately call Confused Lasagna, and my husband just loved it!

He liked it so much, that tonight, when I gave him a choice between Chicken Parmesan or Confused Lasagna for dinner, he chose the latter. This then gave me the opportunity to document all the steps! Enjoy!

Confused Lasagna:

1 Lb Sausage
1 Box Oven-Ready Lasagna
1 8oz Container Ricotta Cheese
1 Can Hunts 4 Cheese Spaghetti Sauce
1 Jar 4 Cheese Alfredo Sauce
1-2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese
Basil, Oregano, Italian Seasoning to taste

Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes

I started by cooking the sausage, and when it was done, I drained it and mixed it together with the ricotta cheese and some basil and oregano.

Then I mixed the two sauces together to make this wonderful creamy-tomato sauce… I could probably eat this all by itself!

My wonderful hubby came down to help me shred the mozzarella cheese, thanks babe! (He even washed the cheese grater afterwards so it didn’t get stuck, what a hunk <3)

After shredding the cheese… this is what was going on at the Eckerdt house.

Anyways, the remainder of the lasagna is pretty obvious if you’ve ever made lasagna before.

Layer all the ingredients between layers of noodles and top with sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes (or until your noodles are soft and your sauce is bubbly)
Now if only it didn’t take so long to bake, this momma is hungry! And so is the baby we have on the way… surprise!

Have you ever tried crazy meals like this that turned out to be delicious? We encourage you to be creative in your cooking and you just might create a masterpiece!
