Writing Prompt 95: My Favourite Recipe

“Your favourite recipe”

My favourite recipe is one I have been trying to perfect since the first time I attempted (and semi-succeeded) to make it: my mom’s lasagna.

It may take a while to make, but it’s pretty easy, making it a great meal for those cold wintry nights.


Meat Sauce

  • 1 kg of ground beef
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
    • Cook these together until the meat is brown
  • One big tin of tomatoes
  • One tin of tomato paste
  • 3 small tomato-paste tins of water
    • Add to the pan with the meat
    • Sprinkle with dried oregano and basil until covered
    • Stir the sauce and cook slowly for two hours

Cottage cheese

  • 1 tub of cottage cheese
  • Splash of milk
  • One egg
    • Mix together


  • 2 balls of mozzarella cut into slabs

Putting it all together

  • Butter a pyrex glass dish
  • Layer with lasagna noodles, meat sauce, cottage cheese and mozzarella. Do this three times
  • Cover the top layer with breadcrumbs and sprinkle with parmesan cheese
  • Place in oven at 350°F and cook for an hour

And voila!

You’ll have a magnificent meal that should give you leftovers for a week. That is, unless you’re feeding a pair of teenaged boys that can eat most of it in one sitting.
