I was looking for a new way to use my freezer full of hamburger AND a recipe I could transport for yet another meal to the field.
I solved both with Impossibly Easy Lasagna Pie. It got good reviews.
I hope it does at your house, too. Enjoy!
Impossibly Easy Lasagna Pie1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup thick and chunky tomato pasta sauce
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Bisquick
1 cup milk
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 9-inch, deep-dish pie plate. Cook beef in skillet (I threw in a few minced onions) over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown. Drain. Stir in pasta sauce; heat until bubbly. Put half of the meat into prepared pie plate.
Mix ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of milk and salt. Drop cheese mixture by spoonfuls onto beef mixture.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
Top with remaining beef mixture.
Stir together Bisquick, 1 cup milk and eggs until blended. Pour into pie plate over meat mixture.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
NOTE: I probably used 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger, so I added another 1/4 cup pasta sauce as well. Also, I didn't have any chunky spaghetti sauce, so I used what I had. It turned out fine.
