- Lean ground beef
- Italian seasoning mix
- Green pepper
- Tomato sauce
- Tomato paste
- Cottage cheese
- Ricotta cheese
- Lasagna noodles
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- This homemade tomato sauce is delicious and allows you to control what goes into your dish (i.e., omit green pepper or add grated carrot, etc.) The above mixture will make about 8 cups and you may not need quite all of it for this dish – freeze any leftovers for later use. If you do not want to create a homemade sauce, you can use 6 cups (64 ounces) of a prepared sauce.
