Italian Prosciutto Lasagna

  • 8 oz. Lasagna pasta noodles, cooked
  • 8 oz. Italian Prosciutto, chopped
  • 16 oz. can whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup. cottage cheese, lg. curd
  • 1 cup. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb. Mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 4 tbs. fresh basil, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped or minced
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white
    wine *(optional)
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • fresh Basil sprigs for garnish
  • 1. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions or until tender but still firm. Drain, keep warm.

  • 2.To make the sauce, in a large saucepan or cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, saute the garlic, onion and prosciutto in the olive oil for 4 minutes. Add the lean beef, oregano, a touch of black pepper and saute 10 minutes. Add the wine and cook until the wine is almost evaporated. Add tomatoes and basil, reduce heat and simmer sauce 35 to 40 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  • 3. Grease a 9" x 12" or larger, deep sided baking pan. Arrange a first layer of lasagna noodles, a layer of the beef and prosciutto tomato sauce, cottage cheese, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Add a second alternating layer of noodles, sauce and other ingredients. Repeat until pan is full ending up with a top layer of sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil

    Tip: When layering the pasta, place bottom layer in pan so the ends lay over the sides of the pan. For the final layer lay the ends from the first layer back-over the top. This helps to hold lasagna together when cutting serving portions.

    *Note* If you prepare this recipe with wine be sure to mention it before you serve it to guests.
