So, my son-in-law, who thinks he is “special” requested this dish of Pizza Lasagna Phyllo Dough and No Boil Noodles. Bless him, Lord. He has the refined palate of a 5 yr old. He struggles in the “try something new” category though, he is getting better.
Pizza Lasagna Phyllo Dough and No Boil Noodles
As we were talking about this and throwing ideas around, I realized that this is doable. I had exactly 1 box of no-boil lasagna noodles. Also, I had 3 rolls of frozen phyllo dough. There were a couple of things I needed from the store and I was going there anyway. I simply picked them up and was ready to roll.
Again Lord, bless him.
I don’t work with Phyllo often (insert ever). Quickly, I realized it is not my friend. That paper thin dough was enough to make me want to say many unscriptural things. Alas, I’m a trooper and I started this mess and I was gonna finish it.
I will insert the things I will put in/change for next time. Read into that last sentence as saying “I will NEVER use Phyllo dough again.” I’ll just type out what I did and I will add >><< for what I will add/change to my recipe for next time.
Brown ground beef (I used 2 pounds because I made 2 dishes) with onion, minced garlic, and seasoning mix. >>>Next time I will do 1 lb beef and 1 lb sausage.<<<< Once browned drain and add 2 large jars of pizza sauce (remember my recipe is doubled). >>>I may add some Italian seasoning, Basil, and Oregano.<<<<
Cottage mixture, Mozzarella, Cheddar, and Parmesan. >>>>I would also use any cheese under the sun to this…Havarti, Smoked Gouda, Swiss, etc. Be wild, it’s okay.<<<<
In a separate bowl, mix 24 oz cottage cheese >>>>can use ricotta<<<<, 1 egg, and 3/4 c. of parmesan. Set that aside.
Get pizza toppings:
This time, on one pie I just did pepperoni (#Benisababy). For the second pie, I used pepperoni and mushroom. >>>>peppers, onions, olives, bacon, Canadian bacon, ham, spinach, anything that you like on a pizza, add it.<<<<
In a greased 13×9 dish, give a good dollop of your pizza sauce mixture. Next, add a layer of noodles (or Phyllo). Then, another ladle of sauce, cottage cheese mixture, cheeses, and toppings.
Repeat layers ending with sauce, then cheeses, and toppings.
Bake the Pizza Lasagna Phyllo Dough and No Boil Noodles:
350, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for about 15-20 minutes. Get out and use a spatula to move the edges away from the dish. Let it sit and meld (yes, Ben, meld is a word) for about 15 minutes or so.
Cut and serve. It was SO good.
