Hey everybody! This week I switched my learning project up a little bit and decided to make videos of myself cooking Lasagna! I wanted to be able to show more of a visual presentation of cooking in order to show everyone my progress! I thought this would be a good chance to change it up!
The ingredients that I had included: I found all my ingredients off of this really good cooking website.
- 3/4 pound lean ground beef from cosco
3/4 pound mozzarella cheese, sliced (12 slices)
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup of cottage cheese
- 12 lasagna noodles
- 2 cups of mashed spinach
- 16 ounces ricotta cheese
- 2 (6.5 ounce) cans canned tomato sauce
- 1 table spoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 table spoon of Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon of salt
Step 1: This is the introduction to my recipe. I have made a video of myself beginning to cook the meal:
Step 2: The second step was making the middle layer of the lasagna where I mixed the cheese, spinach and powdered garlic as well. I mixed all of these into a medium sized mixing bowl. Here is a photo of the cheese I had to shred first and the second photo is how the lasagna looked after the middle layer was all ready to go.
Step 3: The third step was making the Italian meat sauce.
Step 4: The fourth stage was cooking the mushrooms in the microwave and also cooking the meat in the oven. I included a visual representation on the video below.
Here is a photo of the mushrooms before I put them in the oven. I had to cut them into smaller pieces and put them all together in a bowl.
Step 5: The last and final stage of the lasagna is in this video.
Here is the final completion of the meal. I also made some garlic buns with melted butter in the oven. The meal itself was amazing! My family really enjoyed it as well!
I really enjoyed making this meal. I found myself learning a lot about the different ingredients and how to use them in the kitchen. The meal took quite a long time to prepare (3 and a half hours) however, on days I have a lot of time I will be able to make it. The things I would do differently would be to add a little more meat on the bottom layer of the lasagna, it could of used a little but more. I would of probably added in a bit more garlic powder as well.
Overall, I believe I have made some excellent progress in my learning project. I love everything that I have made so far and hope to continue learning more and more awesome recipes!
