International Dutch Oven Society Chapter – Richmond, VA



1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
23 oz spaghetti sauce
9 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
3 eggs
2 1/4 C cottage or ricotta cheese
1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
13 lasagna noodles
1 1/2 tsp oregano
3/4 C hot water

Preheat DO. Brown the ground beef. When done, remove the beef to a large mixing bowl. Add spaghetti sauce (I used Prego) to beef and mix well. In another bowl, add the cottage or ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese (reserve some for topping), eggs and oregano and mix well.

Layer in DO as follows:
4 noodles broken
1/3 meat mixture
1/2 cheese mixture
5 noodles broken
1/2 remaining meat mixture
remaining cheese mixture
remaining broken noodles
remaining meat mixture
remaining mozzarella sprinkled
on top
Pour hot water around the edges of the DO. Cover and bake for one hour. Check frequently.

Hint: 12 briquettes on top, 12 on bottom. I added more on top during the last 10 minutes to brown the top layer of mozzarella.

Thanks to Judy and Diane for the recipe!!
